Dye Over Paint on Fabric

Here's one element of my "Memories of Santa Fe" quilt - the one I'll enter in the Parker Arts Center show. I cut a resist shape out of freezer paper, then brayered paint on my gelli print plate. To get the coral color, I sprayed with thinned dye, and it stayed put everywhere the resist had been.

Art, Wine, and Locovore Food in Paonia

Were we there only two days? We covered a lot of ground on this little getaway, and all of it good! If you go to Paonia, do not miss Azura winery. The view is fabulous, and the architecture is a breath of Tuscany. Lovely!!! Other great places are Fresh and Wyld Inn and Farm, Delicious Orchards, and the Wiseheart B&B. What a sweet little mini-vacation.
This is me; happy to have gotten a sideways tour of this gorgeous region.
