Hoops



I am experimenting over here with paint and paper on stretched canvas in an embroidery hoop. I love the messiness and the colors and textures. Nothing is set in stone of course.

And if the universe thinks it should be so I am going to sign up for the new e-course with Mati Rose and Lisa Congdon. Keeping fingers crossed. Here is the link in case you are interested.

I hope the new year is treating you well so far.

WOW!!! We've had the same word of the year two years in a row, I can hardly believe it....but then it makes perfect sense. Here's is much clarity and strength for us both as we enter 2011 and beyond! I just love coincidences like that! Great idea to stretch canvas over an embroidery hoop, and I can't wait to see what you make in the painting class, very intriguing and I'm sure any class with Mati Rose would be awesome!
