Open at last!

My Etsy store is finally open!

Here is a detail of the first print I have made available.

I was antiquing in Crown Point, IN over the weekend. This Christmas flex fence is one of only two treasures I found after a whole day of poking around. Tina deserves a medal for enduring it all. In my last post I talked about stages. Here at home, next to my studio I am creating my own version of a 'Home Theater'. The Red House is front and center on stage. Butcher paper is standing in for scenery and curtains. My new Christmas Flex Fence will be the audience side of the footlights. The footlights will probably be small votive candles.

So here it is, just starting to take shape.

Stage settings

A stage is meant to frame a scene. Here a drawn frame acts as a stage.

This is a very early piece of stagecraft created for the Indianapolis Museum of Art's Wearable Art Show way back in 1985! It is a theater wrap, a wrap to wear to the theater or to wear to stage your productions. It comes complete with it's own Punch and Judy set of rod puppets.
Here the stage theme is front and center for a quilt I created for 'Quilt Pink' a breast cancer fund raiser sponsored by American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine.

And the inspiration continues, now incorporating embroidery, drawing, and crepe paper.
