Spring has sprung!

In addition to being an Artist and a full-time IT Project Manager (by day), I’m also a Triathlete.  I’ve been looking forward to the warmer weather and the start of my Windsor Triathlon Club’s team workouts which will be starting up again in May.  I really miss the camaraderie of the group workouts during the off-season.

This weekend we had one of those glorious summer-ish spring days and I was able to get out on my road bike for a nice warm ride in the rolling foothills and bright sunshine – this is what living in Colorado is all about!  Riding my bike IS one of the things I enjoy doing by myself.  It’s good “processing” time and helps me reconnect with myself, much like working on my artwork does.

I’ve made some good progress on my Wall Drawing textile painting since my last post, continuing to cut away the layers and stitching some shapes onto the surface as well.  The composition is emerging and coming more into focus now.  Below are two images showing states 2 and 3.

In state 3 (below) I’ve added some shapes back onto the surface and also started adding some stitching/drawing to the piece.
