Fall's Coming


"Fall's Coming" 41 1/2" X 50"

I dyed this cotton Pimatex last year. I'd always loved it, but because of its color variation and strong horlzontal patterning I was never sure where to take it next. It wound up languishing in my stash until last week, when I broke it out and started working back into it.

 "Fall's Coming", detail

I monoprinted two layers of Stacked Journaling using Neopaque textile paint and one layer using Lumiere

The lower half of the top photo is so heavily shadowed that I've set a new goal for myself for 2012- I'm going to refine and repair my photographic challenges (poor lighting, no tripod, hit-or-miss understanding of my camera's features, etc) so I can start to produce high quality images of my own art.

Becoming a better photographer, and taking full responsibility for producing excellent, usable images, will place more control of my career in my own hands. I will no longer be dependent on paying someone to take photos of my work. It's past time; wish me luck, friends!

Good for you, Judi. There is always something more to learn. I hope you'l continue to share what you learn. I suspect we all can improve our photography skills.

I love the colors in this piece.
I hope you make a lot of progress with photography. You will have a lot less hassle and problems if you cold take all the gorgeous photos that you need yourself. I know that is a major problem that I have during the winter especially. It is too wet and cold to do outdoor photos most of the winter. I haven't come up with a good place or method of taking indoor photos. I would appreciate any tips that you could send out to your readers.
