Cabin in the Wilderness

Since we now have nearly 23 hours of daylight I will start a bead art piece using tons of tiny beads!  This piece is approximately  9 inches by 12 inches.  I spent one day getting the foundation together and drawing the basic outlines.  I am using size 11/0, 13/0, 15/0, and the smallest so far are the size 22/0 vintage Italian “greasy” beads used on the birch trees  Follow my progress, ask questions, leave remarks… it’s going to take awhile to complete this one.  I plan to spend as many days outside enjoying our short summer as I can.  I can bead on rainy days.

New Bead Art

Getting ready for summer.  I will be one of the Artists in Cabin 13 again this summer.  This is a small cabin in Pioneer Park, a lovely tourist stop in Fairbanks.  The cabin is sponsored by Fairbanks Arts Association, artists bring in their work and man the cabin one day a week. It is a fun way to show/sell your art and meet new people.  I will be there on Mondays all this summer, stop in and say “Hello.”

Follow Along Day 2

This is 3 hours of beading.  I put down 3 beads at a time, go back through those beads, then lay a stitch between every-other bead to keep them in place. After I have finished a complete row around I go through each bead again.

64TH Parallel

The guest juror this year was Jovencio de la Paz.  He gave a very interesting lecture Monday night, after a long day in the Bear Gallery. Fairbanks area artist submitted over 200 entries.  I think we wowed him Fairbanks! I don’t know how he narrowed it down to 64 pieces for the show.  I am surprised and honored to have two of my Bead Art pieces chosen for the show.

Here are some of the accepted art works from the show. We had a fun evening seeing great friends, other artists and supporters of the arts! Thank you Fairbanks Arts Association .
