Rich Color Study

Study in Over-dye

We had several different projects to work on. I learned some new discharge techniques as well as a study based on over dye.  The week went by so fast. Although I’m very tired, I wish I had one more day to play. It seems that just as the creative inspirations start to surface, it’s time to wrapped it up and come home.
This trip will be an especially sweet memory as  the Rich colors entered a special place within my heart. I learned more about myself, seeing my needs and my passions in a new light. Reaching a place that would’ve normally scared me to death, but actually going through the motions realizing that the special color was always there, I just needed to allow it to present itself.

I just Began a Mastery Study class with Jane Dunnewold in San Antonio, TX. Her Mastery Program is designed so that we will meet twice a year over the next 2.5 years. I am so excited!

As you can see we are making our own color wheels. We have also been given homework including more color theory challenges. I am so excited! Color Theory has always been my passion!

Color Theory is one of the classes that I teach!

I believe that if I studied color everyday of my life, that I would still never know all there is to know about color! But, I’ll have fun learning, playing and experimenting!

We Are All Connected

Several Layers of soy wax and dye. I was inspired by a rock formation that looked as if faces were in the rocks. Impressed by the Native American belief that “We are all connected” in someway.
