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  wrong, the conclusions we draw could be wrong.

If we have always worn sunglasses with pink lenses,  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,  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  your neighhood, Try to see the familiar differently from your accustomed view.  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.  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. You  have just opened the door to greater creatively.

A  few of my own feeble examples, seeing possibilities for  art quilts if I just look. An  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 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
