i have been working on paper recently.

here is a mixed media piece and a mono print

with collage added.

i attended a showing of fiber arts at the 

palos verdes art center.  i found it exciting 

and innovative.  i worked with textiles for 

many years and love, love, love the medium. 

i visited before the names were posted so i cannot

credit the many talented artists.

and i have exciting news...

i am published in the march/april issue 

of cloth, paper, scissors.

the article has a detailed explanation of

tea bag painting!

southern california has been experiencing 

70 degree and sunny weather.  i love the light that

comes with the spring sunshine!

and always, the sunsets over the pacific.

have a lovely weekend!

posting today with friends at paint party friday.
