It’s nearly the end of January, and time for me to get back to the studio in a more serious way. My exhibit in LaConner has come down, and I have three pieces in the new exhibit on the ground floor which is called “Birds of a Fiber”. If you are in the LaConner area, be sure to drop in at the Pacific Northwest Museum of Quilt and Fiber Arts. I was there while they were hanging the show, and got a preview. There is some truly wonderful work to be seen.
But the fact remains, that I have work to do, and I have been taking it rather easy since Christmas. Partly this is because I got a truly rotten cold in early December that had me coughing day and night for weeks. But also, I tend to take January pretty easy, doing some catch up reading and hanging out with friends (and if truth be told, avoiding driving in the snow. I know, I’m a wimp!).
The work I have to do is part of a series I am working on for an exhibit scheduled for late summer 2021. I have finished the first few, and am pretty happy with the results. The further I go into the series, the more complex and interesting they get. But the early ones were inspired by a simple line drawing in an old sketchbook, that finally had a chance to make it to the work table.
Be well, my little chickadees. Stay warm and dry, and mind your health. Peace and many blessings, Larkin.

Hi Susan, I am so happy that you like “Trinity”. I took another run at the design with a different color scheme which I like a lot, though it is much subtler. As for the technique, I am still working with it, and figuring out how to present it in a classroom setting, so am holding onto the details for now. But if you think of the black as the grout between mosaic tiles, I am sure you will come up with something that works for you. Happy experimenting! Peace, Larkin
I think a lot of us need time in January to get back to work, I’m sorry you also had a bad cold and hope you feel better now. I love your piece Trinity, the leaves have a special glow illuminated further by the colourful beads. Could you tell me the technique you used for the black lines? Blessings to you too!
