The Snarky Twins make their debut at ARTEAST

Shibori rust dyed scarf detail.  100% silk satin.
The actual scarf is about 72 inches long--this is an 8x10 
direct scan near the bottom.  Shibori is Japanese for
shaped resist dyeing--the only difference is that I do 
not make a dye bath.  My imagery comes from direct 
contact with rust objects.  More about that in a later 
post.

I've rust dyed 50 scarves!  I surprised myself with the 
number.  That's the most I've made in one summer.
Most of them are in the shibori method--
and all will be for sale at ARTEAST this weekend.
I'll be exhibiting at Villa Marie Winery in Maryville, Illinois.
Maps to 50 venues can be found at the ARTEAST website.

Come see me on the lower level in the Vino Room.  I'm 
sharing the space with 3 other artists -- Jerie Artz and her 
mother Arvilla Friar who are great watercolorists, and 
Alison Reeves who makes fabulous jewelry.
Along with scarves, I will have some of my huge silk hangings
and also some smaller quilted felted collages. 
This is my first post on my brand new blog.  I'll add more 
as soon as I can and introduce you to the art I make.
BTW, can you see the Snarky Twins?
