Art Every Day, Tuesday, April 17, 2013
I'm back! What a trip, lots of great students and many, many miles on the road. Got home late Sunday night and spent Monday and Tuesday packing up the studio in Golden and moving it to my new place in downtown Denver. Sat down to make this piece this morning and realized that not only did I not have a single pair of scissors in the house (packed them all for my trip and they are now at the new studio), but remembered that my machine is acting up too.
So, for what it's worth, here's my return to every day art. It began with a lovely toned red orange linen which I quilted with a curvy, double crosshatch. then I grabbed some hand dyed ribbon and threw it on top and loved the way it looked all crinkled and drapey so I used the fabric squares with iron on adhesive on the back to hold down the ribbon then stitched the squares down with a square swirl.
I like the simplicity and the three dimensionality as well as the movement and color. It was nice to get back in front of the machine!
Now I'm off to paint the new studio!
