Hearts and Birds

More pattern making, with the help from a few good books:  A Field Guide to Fabric Design by Kimberly Kight, published by C&T Publishing, Inc. over in Lafayette, CA, and Mastering the Art of Fabric Printing and Design by Laurie Wisbrun, published by Chronicle Books in SF.

Playing with Fish in Software

Bought new Textile Symmetry and Pattern Design software from Artlandia then combined it with some pen & ink drawings that were turned into glass objects using Alien Skin software and Photoshop.  Ridiculous amount of fun.

Bee World

Six new fabric designs:  1) A little Yellow-faced independent bee flying through the blue sky, and 2) a honey bee in honeycomb.  The bees are surrounded by bee food and habitat, including:  3) Sunflowers in a vase, 4) a close up of a sunflower, 5) a geranium growing out of bricks, and 6) some plant bark.  Add to this the attraction of some Yucca flowers about to be dive bombed by a bee fly.  A recent Time magazine article on Rene Magritte was the inspiration for the presentation - using Magritte's 1937 painting "On the Threshold of Liberty," as a model.  My recent obsession with fabric art was the impetus for the designs.
