How Much Fun?

Along with a tour and talk of my exhibition, I got to hang out with this printmaking class of Eileen Bushnell at RIT today. I brought along thickened dyes, fabric and print tools, then I printed. One quiet student said she was 'pumped', I said it was hard to tell. A ton of laughs with this crowd. Thanks!

Within the Frame

I think I know where to drive this composition. So, I've relegated it to a center medallion, and need to smooth out the framework. I'll redirect the center after that, and use it as a placeholder for now.

Gaining Traction

I'm taken with center medallion composition when I print. And perhaps it's time to tackle one when I piece. I've got a start here, and I like the use of the frame.

What's On the Wall

Here's the selection of fabrics. I've taken down the jumble that was singing all out of key, and put these up mainly because I love blue. And I've been missing blue. Not the earth shattering thought, just a kind of "I'd like to just eat dessert, thank you" statement.

Full Moon is Super

A detail of a print is my Full Moon stand in this month. I'm glad that it's got character and isn't just two flat colors. That's not how the world (or outer space) is, really. Hope you got a look at the Super Moon.

Can You Stand 20 More?

I finally gathered the fabric yards that I sell, had them pose for photos, loaded them on the website store and got them ready for you. Some will be perfect for the class "Within The Frame" and some will be just perfect to have in the next quilt. Or maybe you just want to see what's new. www.patpauly.com/shop

Glorious Prints Virtually

I've got a nearly full class, and one spot opened from a student who ran into medical issues. So, should you want to virtually (but just like a live we-work-in-real-time workshop) learn just how I made these fabrics, join us for the October 16-20 class.

I Can't Make Small

The Quilts=Art=Quilts show asks those accepted artists for a small quilt they can raffle during the exhibition. I often make one that references my piece that is in the show. Except it's hard for me to do small. This topped out at 36 x 36, so they'll have to make room. And, BTW, it can be yours.

Art Business

Brad Butler at RIT teaches a course in Business Art. His sharp class met today at my show to talk "shop," though mostly it was me talking about being a professional in the arts field. You're looking at metal, furniture, and painting artists here, nice enough to listen to me talk. Thank you, RIT futures.

Looked Promising

Now, don't get too excited. These seemed a good idea when I saw them and ordered them. But just handling the silicone long kitchen spoons tells me I'm in for trouble. They are heavy! I haven't tried them out to stir the thickened dyes, but I think the container will tip. Too bad, as I love the color coding.

San Diego Live

This is the headshot I send when someone asks me to do a live workshop. February 5-9, as well as February 12, I'll be in San Diego with an independent group for a 6 day class in printing on fabric called Mad About Motifs. There are two spots open which we'd love to fill. Write me for details  patpaulyart@gmail.com
