Living This Creative Life

I have two favorite quotes. The first one is by Emile Zola, "If you asked me what I came into this world to do, I would tell you that I came to live out loud". I don't know who the second one is by, but it goes like this, "If you're not living on the edge then you might as well jump". Both of these sentiments sum up my personal philosophy of this experience we call life on earth. Enjoy!

Painting the Painted Quilt

Good Morning,
Thanks to Christa for all of her wonderful comments. It's so nice to know that someone is out there appreciating the work I do here on my blog.
Here is the tree, about half way painted. Eventually, there will be no white remaining. I'm using thinned Jacquard Neopaque to paint with. Then I will add some shading and fine details with fabric markers and I will finish with a wash of pale brown to unify the piece.
I'll show you the finished work once I've completed it.
Till tomorrow,

Heck yes, I appreciate your blog, Heather- I LOVE your blog! And I love your work, I guess that goes without saying. (Though I have to say it anyway!)
This is so cool! I want to try it too- but I think it would be a big struggle for me to try and figure out what colours to use, there are so many spaces to fill. And how do you know that you don't want white space at all?
I am going to keep watching, and I am sure I will keep learning. You have already taught me so much!
Have a wonderful day, hope to see you soon.
