fuschia scarf to wear with a jacket

Here is the second edition to my handmade clothing line on If you haven't been reading along, I started out with an extra long mulberry scarf. As I said in that previous blog post, I have made my own clothes for years and wanted to offer the kinds of clothes I make for myself to the general public.

These photos were taken about a week ago on a windy day. This is how the scarf looks with a black wool blazer jacket:

I decided I'd also try it with a casual Acadia National Park fleece jacket:

Here is what the stitching looks like close up:

Here is a closeup picture of me in the Acadia National Park fleece jacket and the scarf:

(you may have to click on the image to see all of the details)

This piece is again inspired by Bliss McIntosh's corn husk and milkweed winged angels. Bliss's work is viewable HERE.

I am on a roll. I made Angel Penelope of the Grain first (which you can view from this blog post). This is the second in the series.

I will have her available as a print and as greeting cards in my Artfire and Etsy shops as well as at a number of galleries and gift shops in my area (and, yes, she will be available at the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Center's 2011 holiday show). Look for her in the next couple of days.

Valley Artisans Market open house, ad design

the ad design I created for our gallery's open house

specs: it had to be a black and white ad, it had to be long and skinny to fit into Hubbard Hall's program book (Hubbard Hall is a non-profit performance opera house in Cambridge, NY), it had to announce our 30th year anniversary, gift bag and open house.

mulberry scarf, extra long

Mulberry Scarf, extra long
part of the new handmade clothing line I'll be offering

I have made my own clothing for years, so I thought I'd make some of it available to the public (first time ever).  Working in so many mediums is a result of having to teach a lot of mediums to art students in the public schools (yes, I have a masters degree in art education).

All of the details on length, etc, are available in my online Artfire shop (my online shop of choice as I can have a lot of categories, a lot of mediums and unlimited listings and where artists are treated respectfully).

Two of these are presently available.

Here are smore photos of the extra long mulberry scarf:

And, yes, I am the model, but I hope to have another model for the new line eventually.
