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, Oct 3, 2013
Good Morning,
Here is today's newest piece.  It began with the multicolored fabric with the circles on it. I love the combo of warm oranges and reds with cool blue violet and I wanted to use the circular bone beads. 
Again, it is very simply organized, this time, so that both the printed fabric and the bone beads could shine.  I quilted the printed fabric with vertical, wavy lines that move between the dark blue violet circles and stitched outside of those circles with no stitch inside so that they would pouf. The twisted yellow gold fabric is top stitched down and the blue violet Mexican jute has long, horizontal lines stitched in it. 
I've done several pieces in this series with a similar composition.  It's easy to work with, has just enough interest and is restful.
Till tomorrow,
