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!

Art Every Day, Thursday, January 31, 2013

Good Afternoon,

What joy! I love, love, love this quick and easy piece.  I just set back and listened to the piece of dyed canvas.  I pulled out a mess of hand dyed ribbons, trims, cheesecloth and other weird stuff and watched as my hands danced over it and laid it in place.  I tied it all up in a bow then stitched it all down. Pleased. Very Pleased. A great way to finish off my first month of making art every day. 

Hope your day has been a delight,
Till tomorrow,

I Love this one! Love the colors , the design that looks like tamed chaos. the combo of wavy quilting and circle quilting makes a great background almost making a "valley" for the ribbons and cheesecloth to settle into. Great inspiration for the quilt I'm currently working on.

Happy 30th day!

I love the free-flowing feel of this.

The background quilting, the long ends of the ribbons, and the torn edges in front of the black batting make this focal point really look like it is floating.

The colors are sort of moody- yet the piece is peaceful and alive somehow. Magic :)
