I’m finally thinkin’ spring

IMG_4075

We’ve had rain, cold, a sunny cold day, then rain, rain and cold, a spot of sunshine here and there.. You’re probably catching my drift, not much of a spring yet. Personally,

It’s always iffy to plan spring events here. You just can’t predict weather. It will warm up, but showers will come and go. Any planned outdoor event must include a contingency plan. Weather men, stations and reports are unreliable further out than a few days.

My point in my ramblings is to demonstrate how truly dedicated a devotee I am to the enjoyment of spring. When it is slow in coming, it generally means the jump from the cold wet end of winter to summer is a direct one skipping the season I love the most.

Here are a few photos of the flowers and colors of spring, past and a few present and a few from the past. Hope you enjoy this glorious season.

Past Garden Tea Party

Published by Barbara Harms Fiber Art

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. 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've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. 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. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. 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 to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, 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 gratifying. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.
