Exclamation Points and Wink Addictions, I’ve Finished My Hollyhock Art Quilt!!!!!-wink, wink!

What happened to the time lapse?

I haven’t posted any updates on my time-lapse/Hollyhock art quilt lately. The concept of  a “time lapse” art quilt, was following progress  at regular intervals. It’s been a busy month and I haven’t spent much time working on it.

Recently, after a week of daily proclamations made on my blog, that I was going to finish this quilt that very day! Yet with my continued dillying dallying,I embarrassed myself enough to get working on it in earnest.

All my self pressuring has paid off! I can announce with relief, I have finally finished it. 

An unrelated but hopefully amusing side point,

A small unrelated side point, I reread this post for editing and noticed that I’ve developed a sloppy writing habit. My use of exclamation marks, is on the excessive side. I’m easily excited and it’s hard to express excitement without exclamation marks, it’s addictive. It is  similar to the over use of air quotation marks, made with your fingers while saying, something like, “She “thinks” she’s so smart”. Another bad habit, less common, is  winking constantly. In the past, I had a problem with this.

My favorite aunt was a winker. She used it with enough restraint that it was fun, as if she was sharing a private joke with you. To an awkward  12 year old,my fun, outgoing aunt made me feel special I wanted to be fun and outgoing just like her, when I grew up. 

Years later out of the blue I winked at some one, just as my aunt might have done.I began to wink more,but as I found,it can get out of control. I started winking so much that it became involuntary.It popped up at the most inappropriate times. No one wants a wink after the death of a loved one,[“How are you doing?- wink” or “You have my condolences-wink”. The receiver of the wink must have questioned my sanity or wondered if I had an eye tick.! That said, I’ll try to restrain my explanation marks, just as I have promised to be briefer, sure I will..[wink wink].

My excitement is overflowing!! Having this off my mental “to do list”,which plagues me until I finish whatever I start is great.I love this quilt, it’s the pressure caused by the pressure to complete it that I didn’t enjoy. 

Winking and exclamation points aside, here is my finished fiber art quilt.

Holly hocks? Must Be Summer“.

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.

    1. Thanks Denise, I laughed so much at your comment!!!! I loved all your !!!s and wink’s. When someone “gets my “humor” I am, delighted. Sometimes, I wonder if I’m a little too far “out” there in la la land, that I confuse people.My sense of humor is a bit quirky, it’s nice to know that someone “gets” it.
      Glad that you liked the art quilt.
