About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

WEAVE

Weave
6.5" x 9" Mixed Media Drawing on Collegiate Dictionary

This commission came from Santa Fe as a birthday gift for a weaver.  I have to admit this one was tricky and took quite a few photographs before I felt confident to recreate this floor loom.  Like so many challenges - I had no idea there were so many different types of looms and then I had no experience or understanding of how the darn things are threaded.

The customer was pleased.  Thank goodness.

I absolutely love this dictionary page.  I was thrilled when I found a page with so many great weaving references.  This particular book was very old and had string woven along the spine instead of glue.  The left hand margin of the page was very narrow and it took a bit of effort and slow going to get it out of the book.  I like the fact that the page was once "woven" into the book.
