For applying to juried shows. I just sent in my applications for two shows. The first is the Kirkland Arts Center show that I have participated in before. It’s a lovely show made up of art from members of the center and runs in the summer. The second show is new to me – the Surface Design Association (Washington) juried show which also runs in the summer. These are the pieces that I’ve submitted. I’m really proud of both of them.
The print is an intaglio that I did last summer. It is called “falling apart”. If you look closely you can see the silhoetter of a person facing right in the middle. I’d like to say that this was entirely planned but it was really just happenstance and created a really strong image.
The birds are made from the linen I dyed with forsythia then layered with cotton and did reverse applique. I love this method and love this little flock of birds. In fact, it is called “flock”.
