Breakdown printed silk cloth overlaid with dyed organza - with a few painted eggs. I'm toying with the idea of securing this to a painted canvas but I'm not sure. If this piece turns out well it will be go into that show I've committed to doing in March. A few textile pieces, a few pastel paintings and a few acrylic abstracts....what a hodge podge...but I'm working towards tying the whole show together with the theme title 'Glimpses'. Wish me luck.

I have just "COMMITTED" a new piece to a canvas. I write that in caps because, by the method I'm trying, there's no going back. I am literally mummifying a fabric piece in acrylic, permanently melding it to the surface of the canvas. I just ran out of matte medium and have to dash out for another bottle. So far, I am weighing gains against losses in finishing a piece this way.

luck -- and then some. I still think you're too exercised (not that you asked) about the mix of media in the show. They're all from your hand, so they're all "of a piece." It's enough for me.

Although . . . maybe it's good to have something "other' to think about to take the edge off any "omigod, I COMMITTED to a SHOW" anxiety that may be hovering. ;-)
