Looking back and learning.

 As I prepare to walk around the corner of 2017
I just have 1/3 of the studio to clean.
Hopefully I will finish today.
 Its been an eye opener to see the art I made 10 years ago
How much I have learned  from all the other artists.
Thanks Doris, Bonnie, Katie, Lyric, Jane, Anita, Susie
 Kate, Barbara, and so many more.
Keeping good company is worth it.
 Its remind me what worked and what I can expand on.
Looking at the 27,000 photos showed me some horrible
starts. Some really nice pieces.
Reminded me of who has my favorites.

 The heron painting I kept.
I really need to do more with silk.
Like the birds nest.
Here's to a new year.

Sunshine for a winter morning

 I have been busy.
Transferred 27,000 pics to my desktop.
I have edited out 14,000 so far.
It has been interesting.
Especially how from 10 years ago how much
stuff I have filled all 3 rooms in my basement
studio with quilting things.
Need to pare down.
Sew up that fabric into art.
 Each January I clean and organize my studio
before I let myself create.
Almost done.
Sorting the photos has given me IDEAS.
I am ready for 2017

 I watched a video of manipulation of photos to
make awesome fabric.
I was so excited that I took photos of my dye rags
Old bedsheets from the Radison that I use to soak up
extra dye when making fabric.
 Than I had a abstract painting .
Water color on Yupo paper.
Wow this just as is will make awesome fabric.
You can see where I am headed.
My new training me from home with videos
to learn something new.

A new Start.

A new year and I am excited to begin.
So many ideas floating through my head.
Which to do first.
This is going to be a year of birds and children.
Art quilts, paintings and clay sculpture.
Time to create.
