Work in Progress

This quilt is one I'm trying to complete to enter in a show at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. I have some really good bits, but the whole thing lacked something. I put it away during the holidays so I could A. Have a life, and B. Get some other art projects done, such as the upcoming article for Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. Now that I'm taking another look, I can see that there's a need for a bright graphic element. Hmmmmm?

Next Up - Prayer Flag Class

I really admire what Deb Prewitt is doing at the Blue Twig. She's got mixed media and fabric art supplies I could only buy online up until now. I appreciate not having to pay for shipping anymore - AND - being able to see the materials up close to make sure I'm getting something that'll work for me. Her classroom in the back is becoming a hub for art folks like me - in fact, I'm signed up to teach a class Feb. 1st from 10 to noon. We'll be using focus words, lettering, stenciling and other techniques to create our best dreams for 2014 on fabric. Hope to see you there!

Repost of an Older Entry/Doodle Drawing

I'm busy this morning readying my article to send in to Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, so here's a redo for now. This is a drawing from 2010 which I added to a reader challenge on the Sketchbook Challenge blog. I'd like to point out how important it is to keep drawing and maintaining your sketchbook. Drawings from the past can serve as thermofax prints, T-shirt transfers, or just a starting point to develop an idea further.
