The Week in Photos – January 10 – 16, 2021
at River Road Studio
The studio is cleaned and ready for me to begin working.
My first project this year will be a series of TWELVE small wall pieces.
The collection will become the “Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring Series.”
I am beginning the series with 3 pieces that will be called, “Winter Wonderland”
Hello! Welcome to my River Road Studio.
Yes, just step inside.
My ceilings are very light green and walls are a Caribbean Blue.
My husband created this color for me. We spent many years in Puerto Rico in the springtime.
We created the feeling of the island in this room.
Here is the table where I do the actual work. The machine you see here is called an ACROBAT. That is a Closed Circuit TV – without this machine I could not do any of the work that I create. It is a live TV camera that is focused on my work and my hands. With the aid of the Acrobat CCTV, I can SEE the beads, needles, and materials.
and art objects – everywhere. The paintings were done by me.
The enormous pots beneath the shelves were done by me. They are called, “The 3 Sisters.”
I collect poetry and art books.
He was born a feral cat, and we managed to save his mother and
three of her kittens. Inca loves to hang out in the studio with me.
I work at this library table and I enjoy the amount of light
that streams into my studio.
Her specialty is watching over the studio and napping beneath the futon.
“Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Above: Some fabrics that will be used to create the seasonal wall works.
I lay out the 3 pieces that will become the Winter Wonderland Series.
This fabric is softly colored with grey on white to give a feeling of winter snow.
I thought it would be perfect for the background for “Winter.”
Beneath each piece of fabric here, is a layer of
Laceys Stiff Stuff.
That will give the fabric a solid backing.
I will build up layers of bead work, gemstones, and found objects.

Place cabochons and coral on the fabric –
I use E600 to hold them down so I can begin the beadwork.
Thanks for dropping by the studio today.
Come back and watch how the art work will be created over the next weeks.
