I Had An Idea

MY BIG IDEA-post #1

I’ve been working on several new projects recently. Here’s one I’ve finished. It has cheerful bright color and thread painting also a smaller size with a smaller price tag.

I’ve had an idea in mind for some time. At one point I tried it out, but didn’t follow through and it fizzled. But it’s still a perfectly good idea.


I’m adding more variety in my available work for those, visiting my website http://www.BARARAHARMSFIBERART.com or my Etsy shop.

We all have different budgets, needs, and priorities. Obviously, not everyone is

 interested in owning an original art quilt,

It’s impractical for them, they have more important priories.

However, some would really love to own an original art quilt but it’s slightly out of their budget.


If this second group found original work that they loved and if it was priced slightly lower, it just might interest them.   

I’m going to include more variety on my website and Etsy shop.adding some  less expensive  work  from time to time. I’m working on several wall hangings in this category as we speak. 

Original art within the means of most people, that’s a good idea, don’t you think? My next post will discuss this further and also introduce another idea that I think you are going to like. Hope you keep an eye open for it. Custom made art quilts that are so beautiful the price will shock you

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s 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 totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. 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. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. 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 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. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.
