After helping my friend the artist Carol Law Conklin take down her exhibit at the Valley Artisians Market this morning she came by for some tea. I rarely have visitors in my studio, but when I do I usually like it.
Especially if the person is an artist whose work I respect and admire like I do Carol’s.
Carol was drawn to a stitched piece I started last week but never finished. She had some insights about it that inspired me to start a new piece similar to it.
So that’s what I did after she left today. I worked on something new, keeping what she said in mind.
I’m not up for writing about it tonight, but here’s a photo of the work in progress, with thanks to Carol.
Carol creates wonderful Batiks and makes affordable functional art from her designs. You can see here work here .

Ewwww wheeeee. Dark background, light thread. Intriguing, to say the least…..wow.
Don’t know why I never thought of it before Cheryl, but it really makes a difference.
I love the black background!
I know Deb, I’ve never used black before, I think it really works.
Yes, the black background is a new Maria development, it really grabs me! And no holds barred on vaginas in this one – it all works together.
Yeah Janet, I got Sheela-na-gig in this one.
