The top image is of some new O'Keeffe pin variations in process made using a technique that we developed for the Shell series.  We like the jumpy colors and textures.  

They remind Steve of some new print/collages that he has been working on this summer.  These are 15 x 88" each, made from scraps and trimmings from other projects.  They have a "craft" quality to them--almost as if he was weaving rag rugs.

For the first time in many years, we will not be showing at the American Craft Exposition in Evanston.  We'll miss our Chicago area clients and friends.  We're happy to email you photos of recent pieces from our studio, and ship to you on approval. 
Stay cool!
