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 , it's always something that slows us down. Last week it was illness. It began in my chest and I had disastrous visions of bronchitis but then it became a head cold which laid me flat for a few days. But I was able to work on a piece I hope to finish in time for the " Eye Dazzlers" entry due date. I did make a lot of progress so we'll see.
As promised here are a few photos of the benefit Valentine Show for our local Arts Organization "Creative Albuquerque" I made 5 little tapestries and 2 mixed media pieces and they all sold!
Here are the 5 "Valentine Tapestries" in the gallery and their silent auction sheets below. On the mixed media wall my piece is on the right in the photo, a framed collage from the "Nipponiphelia Series".

Unbelievably I also finished one of my large Feng Shui Series pieces "Blue Water of the North, Career Success"
They sell for $ 2,400.00 retail and this one is 41"x40".
Here are some in progress pictures as well as done.

And of course, since it's always something I have to get back to getting ready for an installation tomorrow of one of my tapestries in the Municipal Building in the Village of Magdalena ( a two hour drive from here).
I'll try and take some photos of the installation and the final look and have it up next week? But then it's Taxes to get ready ( my daughter's college financial aide papers need filling out). Yes, as Roseanna Danna's Nana
said even at the beginning of this post, there is also the 3 new 21"x 13" new designs I started that need to get to the gallery. I'll try and post the progress of these as well .
Yikes ,what's next?

Feng Shui Series- "Blue Water Lotus of the North"

Feng Shui Series- "Blue Water Lotus of the North"
I sold this piece on line immediately upon launching my website!
