It’s been a wonderful morning

 

Todd Camplin, a friend and fellow graduate of the University of North Texas MFA program, wrote a wonderful blog post about my work this morning. See it here. Todd’s artwork consists of the most amazing ink on paper drawings of abstracted text. He is also doing some wonderful work in digital prints. Highly recommended.

Also, I got a wonderful mention by Mary Stone Lamb on Facebook. Mary taught for a year at UNT, my first year as an adjunct. She is happily retired now, enjoying her life, family and friends.

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post but I have updated images in the tabs section of this blog. There is new work that I’ve completed in the last two years. I’ve also been busy completing a commission and exploring some new ideas in taking my work dimensionally. I’d love to hear from you, comments are always welcome!

Great to see some of your new work. I especially respond to Fragments 2. The added texture and shadow is lovely.

Rebecca said...

Thanks so much, Terry!

It's been a while since we've talked. Hope you are doing well.

Just happened upon your blog while surfing the net. Your textile work/play is gorgeous, so subtle yet so expressive. I admire the fact that you are able to do pieces of white on white--this would drive me silly, but I'm glad you can do. Very refreshing to see your work.

The stitching is predominately by machine, although I may add a bit of hand stitching. Thank you for your comment and support!
