Painting the town Red with Heavy Metal

Fabric of Vision on Main in Ashland, Oregon where my Heavy Metal series began!  Sandi Globus is the owner of this fine fabric store.  An eclectic mix of quilting fabrics, silk, wool, gauze, wool felt, bamboo felt, abundance of trims, zippers, patterns, clothing ideas, aprons, and eye candy.  Ashland is also home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and my family's vacation destination for the last seven years
Beautiful flowers sent by my good friend, Leslie Tucker Jenison sent to match my Heavy Metal series.  Look at the two magazines by the flowers!  How cool is that?

Portals, Metal Frugue and Apron as Personal Armor

  1. How fun Jamie!
    Well planned to be part of the art walk.
    Wish the people could have stepped up closer to the art, but there are lots of reasons not to do that.
    Congratulations! Nice of Leslie to send matching flowers!

  2. You look beautiful, everything looks great, and I hope you had a fantastic time at your opening!

  3. I have been in this store and your work looks wonderful - congratulations on the solo show

  4. Wow, that brick wall goes perfectly with your industrial design. And how smart of you to wear RED! Congratulations.
