Kentucky Crafted, The Market is coming soon. March 7-8 in Lexington. This is my favorite time of the year to create new work for my booth. No. 311. A little bit I follow trends. Like orange and blue and turquoise. But following the seasons is more fun. And since Truly Wearable Art is a "Power Tool," it can be worn all year, any year, anywhere, when you want to make a statement. After I Shibori pole wrap the silk or Felted merino wool, I create palettes to reflect the colors surrounding me. Palettes that will compliment your wardrobe. In late winter, aka early spring, I add a little bit of each colors compliment to my formulas as I prepare to drizzle the dye. I am always amazed at how well the fabrics I dye blend with the natural scenes. After seeing all the Chihuly installations at Fairfield Gardens a few weeks ago I was inspired by the bright contrasts. Be Bold, Be Striking. Take the risk to express your self. It's worth it!
