As I mentioned in my monthly newsletter, I've been busy working on making a series of "Tag Books". My obsession with making art with words and meaning is just getting stronger as I experiment with different mediums and different forms to engage the viewer with ideas.
This set I call an "alphabet" tag book and it is simply the letters of the English language stamped over a background of Bruscho watercolor pigments and sewn all around the edges with a zig zag stitch. I left a lot of loose thread on each card to give it even more texture when put on a ring and hung on the wall.
Every year, I look forward to walking through the ASLD Summer Art Market and getting inspired by all the wonderful art that our creative community makes here in Denver. So this morning, I scootered over and found this amazing artist. I loved her paintings of women wrapped in quilts. She uses acrylics and hand carved stamps to add texture to her pieces. They were stunning.
