First Strokes of Color

There's a little paint on the cloth, and much more to come! I just love these old homes in Portsmouth!

"Beginning is half done...."

Someone said that, don't remember who? Perhaps my mother. I started painting a street scene today. It's a cross street in Portsmouth, NH, filled with colonial homes and a glimpse of The Wentworth Home, in the distance. I hope to complete it in time for an upcoming show at The Wentworth with my art quilt group, SAFA. Time is short and I have been the procrastinating quilter! We'll see how I do!

Let It Flow !!

God is good to the creative mind, if we just let the ideas flow. I have had this idea of floating sheer fabrics, hanging in front of tall sun-lit windows, with images glimmering within. I have had this thought many times lately, at night, when I cannot sleep. Today I started the initial phase. Let's see where this idea leads!

Happy New Year!

The weather is mild and we start a new year filled with hope and new goals. In the past year I completed some fiber art that I am pleased with, although many of my show entries did not make it through the juring process. I hope to produce more this coming year and to improve my work. I hope to have more of my work accepted for shows and to take at least one class this year. It is going to be a tight financial year, so I hope to be wise with my entries and our travels. Her's to a new and successful year of personal growth!
