Open Studios is over, and I had a great time talking with all the visitors.  Most had never seen "painting with fiber" before, and wanted to know all about wet- and needle-felting.  The Ashland Library volunteer art curator has asked me to do an exhibition, and is booking about 14 months out -- that should give me time to get enough pieces complete, as he needs 15-16.  In between visitors, I was working on my current piece, and between then and this week when I'm on vacation, I've gotten a lot accomplished.

I've added some needle-felted detail to the lower right side, with suggestions of vegetation.

I needle-felted in the rocks and cliffs so that the waterfalls are defined.  Added some striated cliffs.  Still more to do on this for the first fall at the top.

Filled in more of the sun-glinted water and the sand bars.  Needle-felted some rocks in the river.

Worked on the waterfall and rocks as well as the elevations to the river on the lower left.

Next I need to work on the wrinkles on the upper right, to define them, and then finish up the sun rays at the top left, and the remaining detail.  I'd say I'm about 60% done right now. 

Looking forward to being in the studio on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday!

Prepping for Next Weekend

This weekend I spent getting things organized for Open Studios next weekend (11/12 and 11/13 from noon to 5p).  Unlike last year, I'm not going to stage educational stations -- it's going to be my working fiber studio, warts and all (although some of the warts are hidden behind a screen).

Hope you can come!  1602B Concord Street, Framingham, MA.
