Kimono’s Solo Show

mkimono-small “Kimono”

There’s really nothing special about the kimono…or so “they” say — except for the art that is displayed. It speaks to a magic of reference, structure, location, and time — without which the article is unknown, unseen, uncommitted, and unending.

The first year I lived alone my Christmas tree was 3ft tall, I went to the tree yard on Christmas eve asking for a deal and they gave it to me, I didn’t make lots of money so I crocheted little Continue reading

2013 – 02 Holiday is past and work work begins

2013 Holiday is Past and work-work begins

bow-i-am-dance-by-karrie-ross Years ago I painted lots more using watercolors. I painted a series titled “I Am The Dance”. It was of  dancers and the mixture of watercolor and pen & ink. I created a boarder and the dancers hands and feet broke through it… opening to the universe beyond. I used different weights of pen that created the wavy vibrations of the ink line.
