And the winner is?

 

Congratulations Kristin, please email me as soon as you are able. 

And to all who took the time to comment, post links to your Facebook page, thank you. 

I invite those of you who have interest my my approach to keeping an artist’s journal to please sign up for my class. This is a video intensive 5 week (possibly 6) class that really picks apart all the different aspects of having fun with art supplies, layering techniques, drawing and painting.

I would love the opportunity to work with you and to explore what you and your visual voice has to say. I will ask you to buy yourself flowers too! This is an added benefit of taking the class if you ask me! We all deserve pretty things to look at (and don’t worry, I have also taken loads of gorgeous photos for you to work from as well.

So please, sign up for my first journaling class today! I look forward to it!

The Wonders

This weekend my Mom came to town and we hung out and, come on! Neither of us brought our cameras! I can tell you we went to see Porgy and Bess, I have been humming the tunes all weekend- we loved it. We had a glass of wine at Morrell, went to Nintendo World (where I want to go with my Man). When I was first diagnosed we bought a Wii, thinking it would help keep me active, even when I was at my worst and needing to stay home. I must say, we were right and Oh! Is it fun, we both really love it. Mom has one too. Then we ate at Gaby. When I brought my Mom to Grand Central Terminal, we did this goofy thing. It was great.

You may have caught on that I will be teaching online workshops soon! I hope you are interested in working with me in this way! I know that I want to get your creative juices flowing to to get inspired by you! That is the great thing about teaching, it goes both ways. As I reorganize my virtual life, I am shutting down the Inspired to Quilt Facebook page and centralizing my social media efforts in my main facebook account, please friend me there! I am sure you understand the challenge of keeping up with social media, I for one would like to simplify and concentrate my efforts.

 I few weeks back I met up with Victoria Findlay Wolfe who has two blogs and a web site. Blog 1 <—-Click it, and Blog 2 <—-Click that! Victoria is a genuinely nice person. Artistically I like what she is doing and I feel inspired by her. Afterward she sent me a  few linens and hankies through the mail. This odd piece of lace was part of a sachet that I have since taken apart and plan to use in a dress I am making.

 I have begun to paint on pine board, and love it! The two photos in this post are the same painting, or the start of the same painting. It doesn’t look like it, does it? I will show an overall photo when the painting is a more established visual.

And look at this little king. So happy.
