The colors of fall

I've been dyeing with black walnut leaves.

Experimenting with different papers.

And different processes.

I'm thrilled, really, with the results.

Taking note of the things that work.

And the things that don't work as well.

Gearing up for several shows I'm doing this fall.

And some workshops that I'm teaching.

Trying hard to remember the lessons of my mentor - India Flint.

Patience, Grasshopper.

    1. Thanks, Karen! It is so much fun, and is always thrilling to open a bundle!

  3. Your beautiful posts have led me to India's books and two years of joy and surprises. I still forget to document but find the prints are unique each time. Your workshop with Roxanne will be an amazing. Thank you for sharing your creativity. Vicki

    1. Thanks, Vicki! I'm glad to have led you to India and your own experiments with eco-dyeing.

  4. These are so extra specially gorgeous, Leslie! Each one a poem!
    When are you coming to new york next?
    We must meet.
    I need to start dying myself.
    I really think fall is my most favorite time of year.

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth! They are - each one - a treat. Fall is also my favorite time of year. We must get together! If you'd like to come down, we could catch up over a dye pot!

  5. I love the look of these! KUDOS to u!

  6. Oh these colours and shapes are some of my absolute favourite things! I found you through Seth's links, and so very happy I have.
