The Real Beal!

Great article in the October 2016 edition of Cowboys & Indians magazine which hit the newsstands this week.

This is their fall fashion issue and they have featured Kathy Beal Signature in their Open Range section.

Here's the text of the feature titled "The Real Beal"

"With corporate installations and pieces in private collections across the country, artist and photographer Kathy Beal wanted to try something new.  Her latest project: combining fine art and high fashion in a collection of handmade silk crepe de chine scarves.  To create original designs like the Sheafs of Wheat scarf, Beal first captures a soft-focus abstract image, then she transfers it to silk using a digital fabric printer."

Today's Compassion Image:"Original Quan Yin"

There's a great story behind this image.  I was on an art tour of China in 1997 and one of our stops was a beautiful new museum.  It was scorching hot and we were told by our guides that we couldn't take our cameras into the museum.  We protested, not wanting to leave our cameras, which were film cameras at the time, in the bus. But, no avail.

Once we got into the museum, of course everyone in there had a camera.  Well, I was traveling with a disposable Kodak film camera 400 ISO, which I kept in my purse.  I took a few shots, but it was dark and when I had the film developed this frame was completely dark.

A few years later, when the digital age was just starting, I bought a film scanner to start working with my images on the computer.  I put this film strip in the scanner and was able to bring up the mysterious image of Quan Yin.  She was the beginning of all of my Compassion series artwork and never would have seen the light of day if it wasn't for the digital revolution.

Be kind and have a grateful day!

Summer Sweetness!

Even though most mom's are focused on getting the kids back to school, it is still summer.

I've seen this peach color everywhere this summer - its one of my personal favorites.  Here's a few ways to dress it up and make it last through the final weeks of summer with Kathy Beal Signature silk scarves.

Additional prototypes on the way!

Since I received so much positive feedback, I ordered two additional prototypes - in color this time and a high-top option too!  I'm pretty excited about the possibilities of these Kathy Beal Signature sneakers, but still have lots of work to do before I can offer them on the website, so please be patient.

In the meantime, if there is a particular scarf design you'd like to see on a sample shoe, let me know and I'll see about getting one made.

All feedback is welcome as it will help me shape this line of sneakers.
