Hazy shades of winter..

I love this photo of Anjelica Huston, photographer unknown to me.
But don't you think she needs a scarf?
Perhaps one of these logwood gray and iron pieces....

Holiday sales.

Lillian August event for Project Return.

Great event for a wonderful cause!

Colors of the Spice Road.

Hard to imagine that these beautiful photos of my scarves were shot in our Wilton, CT backyard.
Thanks to my husband, photographer Tim Geaney, we were transported to the lush forests of another world. And thank you to stylist Sarah Parlow and her stunning daughter for making it all possible.
The colors were rendered from Cochineal, weld, logwood, and madder root.

Spring clean up

Heavy spring rains caused a flood in the studio. Nothing damaged, but plenty of sludge on the floor. Seemed like a good reason to roll up my sleeves and get cleaning!

Spring greens.

Sweet inspiration.

Birthday donuts from the Donut Plant near The Chelsea Hotel were a sweet surprise from my artist friend, Sheila Berger. They certainly flavored my next lot of oversized scarves. Also inspiring were the beautiful paintings, sculptures and mobiles floating in her studio. Quebracho and cochineal were the perfect ingredients for theses stylish confections.

Can you dig it?

Spring Dig at Terrain was sprouting with color and creativity. New Vagabond's Daughter animal print like scarves on the prowl!

First came the egg.

After a long, cold and very white winter I have finally started to hatch some new ideas. Creativity was hard to come by during these bleak months- where had mine gone? Inspiration was hard to find. I finally took my husbands advice and just "took a break".  It did take more time than expected for me to come out of hibernation, but a workshop at Terrain

was just what the witch doctor ordered. And so, it started with the eggs. Latvian Easter egg dyeing with onion skins. Thank you to all who participated, especially to Nancy Moon who took all but the bottom photograph, and Marina gets credit for that one!
