Responding to the urge to return to a simpler life through small scale organic farming. Ravenwood Farm & Art studio is a small homestead on the border of Putney & Westminster, Vermont. Our focus is on raising our own organic, non GMO food and selling any extra that we produce to help support the farm. As a retired professional artist I also use the creative process of art journaling and photography to help navigate the ups and downs of living life with a post Lyme chronic illness.
Late yesterday I finished the Heading South silk painting. I actually made a couple of small changes after these photos were taken. So today I am going to pop it in the steamer for 3 hours to set the dyes. I also took a photo of some of the dye cups showing the colors I used in the painting. some of them get emptied and rinsed along the way so this is just some of the colors I mixed but you get the idea.
