About Me

My photo
Albuquerque, NM, United States
I have been weaving Contemporay Fine Art Tapestries for over 20 years, raising a family in the lovely Southwest. I want to show process which usually gets a back seat to product and share the trials and tribulations as well as the joy and excitement of the creation of art out of a bunch of strings. How remarkable!

Yes, the Show "CONNECTIONS and INTERSECTIONS " Starts tomorrow with a reception from 1-4;30 at the TAPESTRY GALLERY in Madrid NM. So I am frantically getting ready after suffering some illness I seem to have caught after sitting the ATA table at SOFA in Santa Fe last Thursday. All that shaking hands stuff, not enough hand washing. So I missed helping out again on Sunday as I hacked out a lung and threw out my back. Felt a little better and worked 11 hour days just weaving to get the last 2 pieces done.10 days start to finish! Here is a peak as I start to finish them and also a picture of the damascus edging which is a simple half hitch right to left , right warp over left anchor;all the way across at which point all the warp points up toward the weaving . Then it's back again left to right, left warp over right anchor, all the way across and they all point back down. This creates it's own fabric which then
allows me to hang the pieces from the braided and looped warp without affecting the Tapestry.
And finally look at this orchid about to bloom, I'll post it when it does, can't wait.
Now for a swim as I'm all ready and hope to see some of you there.
