When I first began to go gray — I dyed my hair. Like many others before me, I thought I could conceal the salt scattered into my pepper. The unruly gray hairs arrived on the scene fast and furiously. Augh! Hair is my artistic medium; therefore, I began to ponder the creative and intriguing possibilities. Below are images of the first hair drawing I have completed by sewing with my gray hair. Interestingly, some hairs are totally gray from end to end while others are in mid process of changing.
Here is the video of the Durango Diaries panel focusing on artists. I specifically spoke about my ‘hair drawings’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYeuUKIpLEU
