Rain Forest

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I am disturbed by the dismal photographic results of my quilt, my  Rain Forest Canopy. It turned out so well. It was pretty. I was pleased at the results, that is until I saw the photos. How could an attractive quilt look so unattractive in photos of it? I’m frustrated because it

is a cool quilt, interesting, great colors  pretty, such dazzling glittery threads. but you sure  can’t tell from the photos. I have taken a few more photos and done a few tweaks. It hasI thought this one was a cool looking quilt, [ No false modesty here, ha,]  but if i don’t like the quilts I am making, why would I expect anyone else to? If I can’t offer work that I’m proud of, why bother at all?

If I sound like I’m patting myself on the back a wee bit too much, sorry, I can think of no other way to convey the difference between the actual quilt and the  picture of the quilt. I made a list

I’ll describe what I think are it’s best points, that photos don’t show very well. 

Here’s my list:

#1-The color, love those blues and orange reds together, a classic great combo.  

#2-The design. The design is obviously an abstract,. I realize that abstracts aren’t everyone’s cup of

tea, but I love them. I think it turned out to be a cool abstract.

#3- I love the threads I used, for my abstract quilting, The way they made my  quilting pop. they are some of the best I’ve found, what a difference good thread makes.These show with a rich, saturated appearance.

There is a lot more I would like to say here about thread, but my posts are already to long. So I’ll save that

for another post in a few days, come back then, if you’e like some thread insight from a fiber

artist, I’ve used many different threads, kinds and brands, I’ve have found my favorites and will share that, as well as why I personally feel that way.

So check back in a few days.

About Myself & My Approach Art has 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 completely out of place, I tried to go unnoticed, a mute fly on the wall, with a big smile pasted on my face. I've continued to paint most of my life. After a move to Oregon years later, I was introduced to quilting and fell in love. 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. There are often many changes and adjustments along the way. The result can often be surprizing. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction. I love that element of surprize! Sometimes I have one that I especially like, I can't wait to show someone. At that moment l 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 some of my work published in several magazines. which is exciting. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.
