I love to show off what some of my other artists friends are up to in their art making. Portland, Oregon based artist, Joely Helegsen shared some recent photos of natural dyeing with India Flint. The thing I love about Joely's work is she always up for something new and different with a real, natural, rustic bent. The process that India Flint teaches in her workshops is just the right method to suit Joely's art nature. Fun to see how this works.
Spent the weekend in perfect weather...Fort Lauderdale, FL! Came home to Fall Time. Today it rained and I wanted to turn on the heater but resisted and put on a sweater! All of this must have been on my mind when I opened my art book to play.
Karen Young and I started from CA early so we could get to Winslow AZ in time to enjoy a visit to La Posada. A Harvey Hotel for the train system of yore, La Posada is a wonderful oasis for the tired traveler.
Of course the great iron work caught my fancy.
The Turquoise Room is their gourmet restaurant and the front garden grows some of the organic produce.
Of course Karen and I had to visit the town's main attraction...
I found wonderful quotes from Frida Kahlo and thought they might add some mystery to my Frida dolls. I liked the added element to the project so until I completely run out of Frida mania. I shall continue....
Thought you might be interested in seeing Frida getting dressed.
Dolls should be signed at the nape of the neck...my name is too long!
At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think.
