Teapots in the Sunlight.

One element that has become important in my paintings is fabric. I like that it suggests a time period by the age of its pattern. I like how the fabric can be extended into several areas of the composition. I enjoy playing with the patterns in more then one area of the picture. I am also a weaver, so the fact that woven cloth has become a visual factor in my paintings is something I think I will continue to push. The idea of combining the two forms in some way will continue to grow.

Clay pots and a watering can.

I bought this new paper handmade in Japan. Not sure I like it. It behaves completely differently than the Arches I have been using. I bought ten pieces of it, so I guess I have to use it up.

I am really excited about this one. It took a while for it too come together, but once I started "reading the painting" it really started to flow.
