Spring’s a Coming

Sunshine, Warmth and Water = An Ecstasy of Color and Fragrance

Just bought pots of early spring flowers, the first to hit the stores this Oregon spring. Every winter at the  exact moment when you know you can’t take one more dark dreary day, then spring arrives at that exact moment we need it. The dark dreary days are immediately  forgotten and forgiven because  IT IS SPRING IN OREGON!! And Oregon is a mighty great place to be in the spring!!

With the prospect of all the lovely flowers to come, another thing comes to mind. Art quilts with wonderful flowers and the sights of spring, summer and even into fall.

Oregon has new gifts to delight us every season, well winter has it’s own enjoyments, but using the word delight to describe winter might be a little much. Still a crackling fire, cuddly flannel PJs [they really must be flannel PJs to appreciate the whole experience] you in your wing chair reading, while the rain pelts your windows and you feel safe and sheltered from the storm or better yet snow is falling to the ground creating a silent world that initially seems clean and new, giving the world a fresh start.That’s not too bad of an experience either.**

The world is full of life and joy. I’m already planning for flowers and sunlight in the art quilts for this season, my favorite of seasons. Here are a few older seasons.

The colors of spring and summers past.

++ I can blithely say that about our winters here in Oregon,because our snow and rain, doesn’t create the kind of disastrous condition’s found in may other parts of the country. You have our sympathy.

About Myself & My Approach To My Art About Myself & My Approach To My Art I can't remember a time in life, that art didn't play a role, in one form or another. But my primary focus as an artist, has been painting. Close to 20 years ago, I was introduced to quilting & quickly became passionate about it. However to create a quilt there are some necessary steps that have to be followed, this obviously restricts some of the creative choices. I began to miss the creative freedom possible with painting. Since there are only so many hours in a day and I had other important things going on in my life, I had to focus my interests. When I discovered mixed media art quilting, it was a great fit. The combination of quilting techniques with painting and other art skills opened new creative directions to explore. I was home! It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges. Then I follow where it leads. My approach is more of an instinctual one. I usually don't do much pre-planning. My creative choices are made as they present themselves, based on my gut feeling. 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 that 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. Personal Links
