Beaver Trees Kathy Lichtendahl, Clark, Wyoming The center of this piece is a photo I took of three trees in the Absaroka Mountains of Wyoming. I was amazed that the trees were so uniformly sculpted by beavers and yet none had been taken down by the animals. The background is a discarded decorator sample piece, layered with a photo transfer, scrap fabrics, cording and bound with dupioni silk. $100
“Polka Dot Chicken” Kathy Lichtendahl This piece started as a way to use some of the ranch materials with which I come in daily contact, such as bailing twine. As so often happens, it evolved to the point that none of my original ideas were incorporated and, instead, I ended up with a polka-dot rooster! Watercolor paints on bamboo/cotton fabric treated with soy milk; scrap fabrics; polka dot tulle from Salvaged Threads. $150
Cup ‘a Joe Kathy Lichtendahl, Clark, Wyoming This piece was created around the poem that is included below the painting. It is an homage to the morning cup of coffee. Used coffee filter painted with watercolor paints; beads made from pages of old magazines; commercial cotton and tulle. $100
