It's been a crazy week trying to get ready for Mexico, finishing up PR for our show, and catching one day of my art group's art retreat. Some of my fabric birds went into a shop this week, so I have been making more to replace them for our show. I did squeeze in one "What If." This time I asked, what if I add color to the background to make some of the graffiti pop? I wanted to add one color per patch to keep the patches evident. I made little fabric pellets and sewed them on. I don't think they make the graffiti pop at all, but I like it anyway. I think they would be fun to combine with other techniques.
I am leaving first thing in the morning for a couple weeks in Oaxaca and Mexico City, so I won't be posting until I get back. I'm leaving my family behind and traveling with two of my sketching friends for a couple of art-filled weeks. Adios for now.
