Hope you are all enjoying a gloriously sunny Sunday. I'm keeping an eye out for contrails... ✈️☀️💙 A bit more flight path stitchery. Neutral tones this time and measuring 16cm by 16cm.

What!!! No curves?!? Don’t worry, I’m ok. There are curves, I just can’t show you. I’m loving these #cottonsupremesolids from @rjrfabrics. The colourway feels familiar somehow. Is it going to be a sister to #paperroundquilt or #xandyaxisquilt...? You’ll have to wait and see.

Tried something new for this little Little and I’m quite liking the result. Background stenciled with acrylic paint before mirrors stitched and beaded in place. 3x3 and part of my imaginary cell series. At least two more to finish before Wickford Art Festival where it will be fun to see them all hung together for the first time. .

Sometimes starting a new piece feels like stepping out on a path never traveled.... for me especially as I work improvisational without a photo or clue to where I am headed. I may rearrange, add and delete for days before my eye agrees.... and then one day “I will know what I know” and all is well. Looking forward to that day 🤔🧐🙄 .

New work in progress in my STRATA series. This will be # 45. Back in my comfort zone for a while.

And so it begins.... on my design wall the beginning of Peaks And Valleys (2) It’s all about summer, meadows in bloom, lakes, rivers and streams... and of course all the great times in the sunshine!

Finally on the home stretch with this piece. I recently read a post by Chriss Johns @cjohns110 on a “facing method” she tried from: https://thesillyboodilly.blogspot.com you can find it in her tutorial section on her website called: Super-Duper Easy Way to Face A Quilt. I really liked the way it turned out on several fronts: very clean and also the way it lays flat. Because of the size of my piece I increased the width of the facing by about 1/2”. My sleeve is up next, followed by photographing and posting to my website this week. I am committed! Looking forward to starting a new piece! .

You know you've had a good day when you can leave the studio smeared in graphite and gouache. I continue to build this collection as I make improvements along the way. Hmm. I think I need to do a portrait of Channing Dungey. 😉

On my last day off from university life I do of course choose to spend it in the studio. Several works in progress going at the moment. I move between pieces so as not to overwork or overwhelm my self or the work 😆. #aboutthatartlife #graysonstudios #blackwomanartist #portraitsofblackwomen #presence #collage #drawings #workinginaseries
