Who loves flowers? Come on, a show of hands!

C                                                                                                                                                               Spring flowers, who loves them? A huge show of hands go up in response, in our minds anyway.  How many of us lose our breath over beautiful flowers? Or your heart rate raises dangerously high when looking at a bed of your favorite flowers?  Who can get enough wonderful, glorious flowers? There are never enough flowers for us, are there?

I’m guilty of all the above.

Come spring I plant a truckload of old-fashioned English cottage flowers, foxglove, Delphiniums, hollyhocks, forget me nots, hardy geraniums. phlox, all to compliment my 50 +  David Austin roses, not familiar? Think petal counts of up to a 100,  old-time fragrance that’s non-existent in modern teas. One even had a perfume named after it, Evelyn was used as the basis of that lovely perfume.

They are bred with a mixture of old-time roses Although most of them rebloom after the first flush and continue to do so.

They fit in so well, wonderful soft romantic colors that mix so well in a cottage garden. . Then don’t even get me started on peonies, I can go on about them as much as I can roses.  I take a massive amount of pictures as you may have noticed by my posts.

When I’m not planting them or smelling them or photographing them then I’m quilting them. As a quilt artist, flowers are a common theme in my work.

. Back to my post…Oh thing more, I’ll find a few photos of my garden a few years ago when it was had an especially good year, so I can brag on it.

After all this waxing poetic, What do you suppose the subject of one of my  new quilts? surprize! Stylized spring flowers, a no brainier that.

So if you are a flower affectionatos,  this is for you.

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s always played a role in my life, in one form or another. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting.I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild, at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.
