No matter how hard I try, the colors around me always seep into my work.  Now that it's winter I'm adding more black to my formula to get a deeper color.  Next I want to explore adding lots of black to yellow and see if I can get "deep chartreuse."

Art for the Wall
Tahoe Blue nuno felted merino on silk with Beads.
First I made a jacket.  I felted the remnants onto a wool rug backing.
The added beads following the shibori lines.
The colors are the same colors of blue we saw when we visited my son who lives near Lake Tahoe.

Hemp Roll Collar Duster

Hemp roll collar duster, size medium.  I cut the fabric in two pieces and shibori dyed them separately, pole wrapper, pre soaked in a soda ash solution.  I used yel orange with black which created the greenish hue.  I used to try and get all the white out.  Now I surrender and let it become part of the texture and design.
