I'm pulling my silk painting time lapse videos over from that one other video site, and putting them on share.tube. Here's the first, painting a tree. Most folks don't know how silk painting works, so I like to do demos and videos about it.But I never do as many as I mean to...

I'd have made a new account, but new signups are locked.

It's not possible to change my share.tube user name, is it? As soon as I made my account I regretted using my business name rather than a neutral name I could use for nerd rants and business stuff.

I'm revisiting pixelfed this morning. Looks like it's coming along nicely.

Recently painted silk tarot/altar cloth. It was meant to be a custom order but it didn't match my client's tarot deck quite right, so we're doing something else. But I am pretty happy with the way it turned out anyway. :)

Yay, my art show is done. That was a lot of work. I'm going to lounge as hard as possible today.

I'm too tired from art show chores to do actual art or take pictures of art right now. At least there is tea.

I think I'm getting better at my indigo fermentation vat!

(Fiber art nerd content warning, except content warnings are totally overdone, and the worst that can happen from this toot is extreme boredom, unless you have a very specific indigo--fermentation-phobia).

Test driving this pixelfed thing. I am excited about groovy new platforms like this.

I asked this on my linuxrocks.online account, but maybe I should have asked you artsy types in the first place: What's your image management setup for photos and such? I use Linux and currently use Digikam to browse photos, and it seems okay. I'm still getting familiar with it. What is your favorite software or strategy?

A shot from the Chinese Gardens in Portland. I was there this afternoon doing silk painting demonstrations, and it was not 100 degrees, so that was amazing. Such a magical spot. Painting demos are great, but I'd just rather sit and stare at the scenery and ponder existence.

When you are reading my toots, please do so in the voice of a person who would wear these shoes, thank you

I'd like to post some of my painting videos on Peertube. What instance should I register with? Any favorites for arty stuff? I have some up on Youtube, but want to use better platforms too when I can.

Holy adverbs Batman. This is from an actual score my orchestra played.

First test hankie from my new natural indigo vat. Not a bad start, though I have some improvements to make. I've messed around with indigo for years, but this bigger vat should let me do some bigger pieces, and I'm excited to get a little more serious with it.

After seven years at the Portland Saturday Market, I have resigned my membership. It has been a part of my life since I moved to Portland in 2011, and it feels strange to let it go. I will miss seeing my lovely artist friends and sweet patrons every weekend. But it is the right time to make this change.

Time to prioritize other artwork that I want to do, working on my house and having the same day off as my husband once in a while. Life keeps on lifing, and I'm just trying to keep up.
