"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Open Studio

My studio will be open for visit's on Wednesday, August 26 from 10 am until 3pm. The photo above is from part of the second framed tapestry on exhibit. This tapestry is titled, "Duck Bay" and it measures 27" wide by 29" long including the frame. It is woven with New Zealand wool that I dyed with acid dyes. I wove this tapestry last winter on my hand made loom. Why bother making a loom when I already own a top quality american made one with all the bells and whistles? The reality is it takes far more skill to weave on a primitive loom than on any factory built loom used today. I needed a challenge - and I found it in first constructing this loom and than on learning to weave on it. I also needed to feel that primal connection and I love this loom for giving me all of that and more. The price on this tapestry is 885.00 Canadian dollars. Forty percent of that is going to buy clothing and food for homeless teens. I charge actual shipping only. If you are not happy return the tapestry to me within 14 days of receiving it and I will refund you minus the shipping charges. I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you think you may be interested email me and I will send you more pictures. Together it is possible to make a difference and share the love every kid deserves.

  1. You are talented, and I love how you will share part of the proceeds.

  2. Ronda, I thought this was an exquisite PHOTO where light was perfectly caught! This is stunning. LOVELY!

  3. So beautiful Ronda, you have a gift for sure.

  4. ronda that is absolutely amazing. so calm and beautiful.
    and yet arresting as well!
    the vibrance of the color... the mountains and the sea... in coves.
    i'm wondering if a coffee house in portland or seattle wouldn't immediately buy your work for their walls ... if they could know about it. i wonder how one goes about contacting them that way?
    probably why artists have agents.
    but then... the agent would want 'their share' or whatever...
    kind of defeats the purpose of your own noble endeavors with your art. i admire you so much! xo
