While we were in New Mexico recently, we took a day trip to Taos, my favorite little New Mexican town. While there I made a great purchase of a piece of fabric art by artist Mary K. Lyon. I had seen her work in 2011 when in Taos at the Las Comadres Gallery but didn’t have the extra cash at that time to buy anything. Las Comadres is a women owned co-op gallery.
Because I couldn't get a good photograph I had to scan it on my printer. It is still a little blurry but much better than the photo.
The frame is 8” X 8”, but the block is only 5” X 5” featuring intricately folded then sewn batik fabrics. Those folds are TINY! I’m so glad I now own one of her pieces of fabric art.
Also, while we were in Old Town Albuquerque, I found this darling cat t-shirt that had to come home with me. The semi-native American markings and the color really caught my eye.
He seems, however, to have the same grouchy expression in his face that my cat usually does.
