Since I have started making these fabric bowls (see previous post) I have reawakened my love of fabric. And combine that with the next gallery show at Olde Towne Art and I decided to finish one of my quilts that I started years ago. The new show, which will start April 6th, will be called New Works. I am almost finished my quilt for that show plus I will be displaying/selling my fabric bowls. I am almost finished a third bowl which will be my biggest one. In an upcoming post I will be sure to give you all dimensions so you can get a feel for my big one.
Here is a sneak peek at my quilt. The working title for now is A New Twist On An Old Pattern.
- I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go. I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures. I cannot believe it's been six years now! Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:1. Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at onceWith all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!
