Here's Marilyn!

Marilyn was just having herself a great time!  When you reach her age, you don't let a lot bother you anymore and just go for what feels right!  Her work always shows this free winging style of hers and is a delight to view!

Marilyn's daughter Amber liked her mother's skirt so much, Marilyn made one for her.  Front view

Whimsical mixed media piece of rust printed cotton with rusty wire and a pair of old chicken feet were added to comple the piece.  Titled "Fowl Play"

Marilynn doesn't waste even tiny scraps of her work from the eco print workshop.  This table cloth is made from  many scraps of her eco printed and dyed fabrics.

Multi techniques on a first eco printed, then shibori and cochineal dyed, then hapazome (flower pounding).  Very nice piece!

Another multi-technique piece, but leaving out the cochineal and shibori.
