Think Art, See Art, It Surrounds Us.

Find the unudusl and unique

Don’t you agree that one of the things which have a great effect on our lives is, what we think, our attitudes & what we believe to be true?

When we are convinced something is true, it colors our perception. If what we happen to believe is Β wrong, the conclusions we draw could be wrong.

If we have always worn sunglasses with pink lenses, Β the world will look pink. It isn’t, but it looks that way to us. Our vision distorts what we see, and misshapes our perceptions. We may not notice possibilities right in front of us.

A real close view? Maybe.

What does this have to do with art? If we view the familir surroundings with preconceived ideas ,eventually we stop noticing them at all, Β We look , but fail to see . We see what we expect, We fly bye without a second glance, “Nothing interesting there” we conclude but we may be be missing a lot. Here’s an experiment to try.

  1. Take a walk around Β your neighhood, Try to see the familiar differently from your accustomed view. Β Look for new ways to see what’s there.
  2. How does is it effected by light at different times of the day. Notice texture, could that be interesting?
  1. Β Look at things from new angles, high, low, close, far.
  2. You will begin to think in “quilt” or think in “photo”, You will see ideas everywhere, new projects waiting to be made,
  3. YouΒ Β have just opened the door to greater creatively.

A Β few of my own feeble examples, seeing possibilities for Β art quilts if I just look. An Β unusual moon or gold sunset siouletting a row of trees, but it can be that easy.

  1. An unusual moon, I though a amazing opportunity for a quilt, snapped a pic
    This is the art quilt which came from the unusual moon
    This is quilt that came from a unusual sunseth several other
    Look at your world, really look
    This is one of several photographs of the same exciting son said that inspired the art quilt above

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
