It’s been exciting to play with Laverne’s gorgeous dyed silk and shibori wool scraps for our collaboration. I recommend any artist to experiment with materials they don’t usually use. She invited me to the challenge for an exhibit at MS Rezny Gallery. See details about this below. We started with an abstract painting I did on Arches  paper. Because of travels and the distance between our homes, we sent the piece back and forth to each other by mail. This is the second stage after she sewed some of her fabric on.

I added more painting and drawing and sent it back to her.

Laverne then wrote on the collage. You will just have to come to the gallery to see the finished artwork.
