This 3-step process moves from color splashes of water color painting, to its monocromatic rendering, and finally to the intermingling of both in a variety of warp and weft weaves.

No Sew Purse! - Meet Furoshiki Hi there friends! I can't wait to show you what I've recently learned. Have you heard of Furoshiki? I hadn't until a week a go, and I'm in love. Furoshiki is a Japanese technique, like origami, but for fabric! They are a type of Japanese wrapping cloth, used to transport food, gifts, or other goods.
I've been doing a lot of crafts lately, especially fabric-related things, it seems -- don't worry, we're still eating. I've been in a bit of a slump, cooking-wise, it seems, and anyway the weather has been so dreary for the past few weeks that photographing it would be next-to-impossible. ("No, honey, you can't eat it yet. I'm waiting for the sun to come out.") So I spare you. Mommy Cooks: Furoshiki

The Creative Journey Winter’s Here Owens Valley Sierra California landscape oil painting January 20th, 2014 “Winter’s Here” 8 x 10 inches oil painting of Sierra peaks This small oil painting reminds us that sometimes the Sierra really is packed with snow, bringing water to all of California.
