I mentioned at the beginning of 2015 that my word for the year was LEAP. Here is a jpg of my first piece going into a fine art gallery here in St. Louis. I'll dole out the other two this week to gear up to the opening reception for all the artists. This piece, Concerto, is a mixed media piece that features metal powder, water media, fibers and beads on 12" x 12" birch deep cradled wood. 2014 brought forth a stamp with a treble and a series of stencils in that same design. I hadn't planned to do a motif related piece but since I work intuitively with the fibers, this is what started happening when I dropped the black handmade fiber onto the substrate. No, the whole treble wasn't there but the fiber dropped with the hint of the shape and my brain did the rest. Most of you know my psyche is very connected to music so this piece resonates with me. It was hard to take it in. More to follow later this week.
