Rainbow Frames

My friend Linda Cooper teaches fabric painting classes. Although I was supposed to be helping her clean up, I stopped to admire the stack of frames leaning in repose against the wall. Each one tells a story of fabrics stretched and stapled, of colors chosen, brushed, splashed, spritzed and sponged. Every time they were used, a little paint remained behind on the wood.The colors have mixed in unexpected improvisational combinations.Those frames are a marvel, as interesting as the fabrics they supported.
