So begins a new series I've titled "Fields". So far the goal is 18 large pieces and 12 small pieces. I'm using earth pigments, charcoal, conte, and mixed media pm cotton and silk fabrics this time around with machine stitching as the finishing touch.
I've been dragging my feet to start on this series, as it is the first series where I won't be using natural dyes. Fabric painting begins tonight. Photos coming soon.

I love Autumn, I truly do. The lack of humidity, the cool crisp air, fresh apples, and pumpkins everywhere, and most importantly my allergies are starting to calm down.
The part I love the most, however, is the colors of the leaves. Reds, golds, oranges, and brilliant yellows, and everywhere!
So it's no surprise that I created art cloth show casing these colors in my Colors of the Earth and Pretty Pigments online classes.
If you'd like to capture the beauty of nature's natural palette using natural earth pigments then join me in my newest class Colors of the Earth. Class starts on October 17th!
