|"Mitosis" (2013) charcoal, watercolor, ink, iridescent painting medium, cotton|
embroidery thread, bugle beads, cotton lace.
Early this morning, after Michael left for work, I sewed some lace we had gotten at auction to the top of "Mitosis", while I watched CBS News and waited for papal smoke. I'm interested in this marriage of texture and pop of creamy white color. It's, at least to my eye, unexpected. Now, I am working on something new and will shortly be threading a needle again (which, annoyingly enough, now requires that I wear reading glasses, since I can't hit the needle eye without them).

is my Brookly Art Library Sketchbook, which is slowly filling up. I have a new double spread
completed, which I will show soon!
