I haven't had the time to paint to much this month as I have been sewing and sewing and sewing. I have made alot of progress on my sewing installation and can finally see it taking shape. I have included some quick shots of my full figure and the small changes I have made with the paintings I intend on finishing this month.

These are some of the sewn pieces I have been working on for the installation I had in mind, I am also working on a full figure that will go with these pieces. I hand dyed some of the fabric used here, which was time consuming but interesting to try ( very much like watercoloring). The colors are actually really pretty and not at all represented in my usual bad camera work. The textures have been fun for me to work with, the contrasts between the thin silks and rough organdy.

These are a few paintings I am working on in my studio. I have been doing alot of sewing lately so my paintings have been going slower than I anticipated but I am liking the way things are progressing. Its funny the other day someone came in my studio and commented on the blue painting, she asked me if it was a monster and I didn't quite understand how she came up with that but now looking at the image in the photo I suppose a black and blue figure with half a head could very well be considered a monster. Its just strange that sometimes its hard to see what someone else sees until its taken out of the context of what you imagined.
