- The idea for COLOR BRIDGES came from many sources. Portland State College 1962,Professor Frederick Heidel's first painting assignment was to make a grid and explore mixing colors to arrange on the grid to see how they would look. Moving these painted pieces of paper on different backgrounds bring back 4 years of studying painting with Heidel. Each arrangement I have made are like his assignments. They have a goal of basics while allowing the emotions freedom. Another source was Professor Mary MacIntire at Western Washington University who was a member of Fiber Design and I had the honor of photographing for a statement about her process. She used to move around pieces of colored paper to design her fiber works.

My husband adjusted my drawing to fit with the two by fours. Before using the band saw to cut out the forms I drew slight dchanges to his drawing. Thus the cement castings are true to the character of cement casting. Saturday the cement should be strong enough to move in place with the other castings.

I AM MAKING AN ACCORDION WATERCOLOR JOURNAL ABOUT MY IMPRESSIONS OF THE INCA CRUISE I painted almost everyday on location on shore or on the ship. I am also making a garment from the fabric that I purchased from the lady in the picture from Antigua Guatemala.
