I delivered six newly created scarves to the gift shop at the Quinlan Art Center today. While there, I was thrilled to check out the new exhibit Local Colour, in which my "Grace on Tenth" is hanging. It is a terrific show, and if you are nearby, you need to go see it. I was blown away by all of the works exhibited, but especially those of Clayton Santiago.
So, I thought I'd share a few pics of the scarves that were included in the delivery. This delivery was particularly difficult for me, as I felt very attached to these babies.
This is "O O"
and this is the crepe de chine scarf I showed you the other day that has the foiled gold swirls on it. It is yummy, if I do say so myself!
I am particularly fond of this one, as it started out as a deconstructed screen printed piece, and has lovely little echoes of light blue and gray and white in the background. Again, I used the swirled Thermofax screeen and some royal blue for the added effect.
here's a detail shot:
Now this one is definitely my favorite of the lot (I think!)! It also began its life with lots of deconstructed screens and then I went back in a folded it up, applied some soy wax and then some dye, and voila!

and here's a pure shibori scarf, using some wood blocks that our friend Joe cut for me as the resist.
I love the colors in this one.......very vibrant and rich. The bit of turquoise is sort of a surprise, isn't it?
Thanks for sticking with me for 700 chatty posts!!
