Do You Dream in Color follow up -it’s a real quilt!
Too may extra shots of espresso in your latte?

Fiber art projects that are unfinished and forgotten, a few posts back I mentioned one of these that I had resumed work on. We’ve all have some sort of project like this. You know how it goes. You start a project and one third of the way into it, you [a] get distracted by something more pressing or [b] become bored or [c] just don’t like where it’s going.

I was [a] originally distracted, something more pressing came up, but in all honesty I was also [c] leary of the florescent colors and overall busy-ness, how would this be received?

When I posted the original post, I was undecided where this was leading. Was I just having a little free motion fun? Or was I seriously considering this a legitimate quilt? Was this my guilty little pleasure, like some low brow TV show that you enjoy, but would never admit it, too corny, silly or stupid, remember the old show Hee Ha [sorry Hee Hay fans]? I can think of several TV reality shows like that. Strangely entertaining, but is watching a bunch of crazy people argue and backbite each other for a whole hour really what you would call a mentally enriching, public education sort of experience?

That brings me to this question mark of a quilt. If I finished it, would I be willing to offer it up for public viewing, without fear ofΒ  snickering and derision. Could I list it in my Etsy shop for sale and be able to hold my head high?

It is insanely bright, no exaggeration, a preschooler might find it too much. It has some of the brightest thread you will ever be likely to meet, and every square inch covered with as much busy design as any one quilt could possibly bear.

Well I’ve finished and I can loudly admit, “I like it, yessiry, I like it”, every color drenched, neon hyper drive inch of it. I think it’s fun and jazzy, And…… it’s sure to get your attention, whether you love or hate it, you’ll find it hard not to look. My guilty little pleasure is out, I love color and on occasion, hyper drive design. It’s now, obviously, been renamed with the title “Over-stimulation”. One too many quadruple extra shots of espresso in your latte, ZZZZUZZ!

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. Word press Etsy shop-sales Contact: inquiry Personal Links
