New Art

It's been a while, and I have been busy. I'm getting ready for the cocooning of the fall and winter, by getting back to quilting. It is so much easier to quilt than to search for my muse in making art. Quilting is very relaxing and making art can be rather stressful . Stressful in that I am often not very satisfied with the outcome. I'm sure it is the age old thing of self doubt, and I have it in spades when making art.
I've spent the last few weeks re-reading art magazines and reorganizing my studio. The studio still needs work, but here are a few photos of what I have done so far...










As you can see, I still need to work on this part of my fabric stash. This is the fabric I use most often, (batiks, designer, and other artsy fabrics found here and there).
I decided to separated my fabric from my art supplies, so I feel more focused on either art or quilting. The photo of my sewing room shows about a half of the room, and the table I use for art is only a part of that room. My husband has been wonderful in letting me have most of the basement for my art/quilting endeavors.
I have done a little art....





The affirmation art is inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts, and the Gridlock piece is inspired by an article in Somerset Studio by Lisa Kaus.

I really like your blog. Your art work is fantastic. I love gridlock. It actually inspired me to get back at painting and collage. I also like how you rooled your fabric stash. You can see it much better. I shall have to try that too. Thanks for your nice blog and ideas.Sharon
