I got up to rain today...finally, as we need it here in California. Loaded my car with fiber art and headed once more to Davis, a week later since my first solo show to set up in Chris Pike's Pillates studio. Chris had seen my work at the Paint Chip last week and asked if I'd like to display it at his studio. I loved the colors on walls and ceiling...these three stripes are skylights on the ceiling! Chris saw my camera and asked if I'd photograph him for his business needs. I was happy to do so and took a lot of photos of him in different exercise positions. Here he makes a nice underscore for my art don't you agree? ;-) The colorful walls really set the art off nicely. And the black bamboo poles I had picked up at the thrift store months ago finally came in handy. So as not to make more holes in the walls I added brads to my little quiltlet squares with the quilt story, contents, my name, price etc and used thin gold jewelry wire to attach them to the wall hangings or hangers. This one was not in the last show. It's called "Swirl" and is made up of lots and lots of swirling sari silk hand dyed ribbons thanks to Vivian Bonner's ETSY store. I like how the weights are color coodinated to the wall hanging. I thought Seeds of Hope I and II looked great on the sunshine yellow wall. And California Gold liked blending into this orange wall. A small window between two larger ones.
