Please come and see this fantastic display of art.
We sewed quilt blocks, dyed fabric, journaled, danced, chose special names, bound books, made mosaics, ate delicious food,(made by Rick,) cut stencils, embroidered, drew pictures, looked at art books, talked a lot, showed photos of grandkids, assembled quilts, played Quirkle, ran up and down the steps, petted the dog, traveled back and forth, made more mosaics, laughed, and had a great time. I am waiting for pictures, since my camera was always on the wrong floor. Will post some soon.
See the new gadget on top??? Now you can subscribe to this blog, and get it every time I post. I promise not to post 8 times a day.
I recently became part of the USArtquest design team. This is a group of fiber and mixed media artists, working with products made by USArtquest . We are given a challenge of making art based on a theme or size, using the products, within agreed limits. For February we used Gildenglitz, Dichro Fiber, and studio cloth.
I made this 3d fish, cut from studio cloth, and placed on a quilted fabric. The seaweed is Dichroic Fiber. The scales have Gildenglitz for shine. I also used Mica Flakes on the fins and tail.
I like that the studio cloth is so sturdy, yet soft. I cut many slits in it, with no fraying. This challenge stretched me a bit, feels good.
In March and April Twotwelve Arts will host the show People and Cultures of Earth. It is a collection of diverse styles of art inspired by the traditional art forms of many societies. My entry is called Mystery And Power. It is a large clay mask, adorned with coral, wood and glass beads and seashells, with raffia hair.
IQF Special Exhibits Celebrate Spring has accepted Spring Peepers, so it will be off traveling soon.
