Today I have a little indigo dyeing going on. I needed a light blue for a piece I have been commissioned to create, a blue to echo the Salish Sea. Indigo dyeing requires a lot of time and preparation. Yesterday I worked on creating the stock solution. Today was creating the working vat and then […]
This post is “the rest of Opus Daily Practice”. A bit of traveling managed to happen at the end of this project which meant I was able to post to Instagram, but my cell phone data plan was unhappy with the usage needed for blogging. Below are the rest of the pieces created for the […]

Opus Daily Practice day 8. Today I decided to work on projects in progress than start a new one based on the prompt. Cold weather is allowing me to get a lot done. One bag finished. One hat finished. The maple leaf drawing is super close to finished, and the kayak drawing is in progress. […]
Opus Daily Practice day 7 ( #opusdailypractice ). The theme was “urban”, citing the style of Basquiat as a style. Each day I have been doing a daily practice with both art and handmade, today is no exception, except today I will show both pieces separately as the styles are so vastly different. The painting, […]
Opus Daily Practice day 6. The prompt to create work was “repetition”. This is my comfort zone. Repetitive patterns and repetitive shapes in the drawing (still in progress). Repetitive movement in the re-spinning of scrap yarn (eternally in progress!). #opusdailypractice http://www.debra-hunter.com http://www.handmade-canada.com . . . . Ads belong to WordPress.
