Modern Plaid

I am painting plaids.  Planning a quilt for J and looking for plaid fabrics, surprisingly, not many interesting ones available.  My plan is to paint the designs on silk scarves then, use the ones that work for this project and turn them into “screens” for printing on cotton.

Really like these plaid stairs found them at Matters of Style

Another plaid-not the colors for J but an interesting interpretation.


New Class

I have a silk painting workshop coming up in Smithfield at the Art Center@319, contact them to register.  This is a day long class at the new location of Isle of Wight Arts League we will learn and practice several techniques and complete several samples and a finished silk scarf. The class size is limited due to space, so sign up early to try out this beautiful art form. It has been a couple of years since I offered this class, so I look forward to working with everyone.

Teaching Near and Far

by Tuckoo and MooCow

Planning for the new school year has been ongoing for several weeks.  I home school my son and also teach at a private art school.  My boys here at home are going to work in a journal format this year.  We will incorporate art, math, science, and writing lessons into a bound book format.  It is something I have used a little in my art classes I teach, and I think it will help keep a flow going and make our life moreportable for travel.



I you have noticed here on the blog J my youngest is now a contributor here and writing a post a week about color.

I love the beautiful book in these photos.  We will use a blank book, I was going to let them choose, but I think I will select something and present it to them with some new art supplies.
