First walk 2014
a teaser

stepping back


Long before I became a dyer, I was a photographer and printer.  I worked exclusively in black and white, monochromatic.  Learning to see the world in monochrome is to rewire the way you look at things.  Texture, form, light, dark, contrast, the positive and the negative spaces paint the way you perceive what you see.  Like a light switch that you learn to turn on and off, color steps back and away.  Try it.  Playing with the way you see things is fun.  It is one more of things I enjoy about winter.  Ice and reflection are less about color, and more the abstract, my comfort zone.  


Wonderful composition, Judy. I love monochromatic work. Hope to see more.

Great photo! I wish in a way the screen was like a touch screen. I want to zoom into the nooks and crannies of your photo- loving the above the ice, below the ice and the reflections.

You have a talent to be able to switch the color off and monochrome on. Makes for a good foundation in knitted colorwork.

My mother was an artist and print maker when she was alive.

Love this.

Your picture highlights the texture of the ice as if it were fabric. Beautiful!
