My Fiber Art is Hanging In Oregon’s new State Hospital. How About That?

I had a nice experience that I thought I’d share. The state of Oregon purchased four of my art quilts. You may wonder why would a state need art quilts? They were needed because the old Oregon State Hospital was just that, old. Repairs and improvements had been made over the years, but it had reached the point that the state decided they needed a new one.
That new facility has just reached completion. the new beautiful Oregon State Hospital and new beautiful buildings need to be decorated. So art needs to be purchased. This is where I came into the picture,as well as other artists.. This is the same hospital that the old

movie “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” was filmed in. Do you remember this movie?

Today’s the day, I’m excited!!

I’ve been rattling off about being featured in Art Quilting Studio magazine. The feature will follow the progress of making this quilt, and the inspiration behind it. It was about finding inspiration everywhere and grab a pic of anything that interests you. It doesn’t have to be super high quality photography. Take your phone andContinue reading “Today’s the day, I’m excited!!”

Exclamation Points and Wink Addictions, I’ve Finished My Hollyhock Art Quilt!!!!!-wink, wink!

What happened to the time lapse? I haven’t posted any updates on my time-lapse/Hollyhock art quilt lately. The concept of  a “time lapse” art quilt, was following progress  at regular intervals. It’s been a busy month and I haven’t spent much time working on it. Recently, after a week of daily proclamations made on my blog, that IContinue reading “Exclamation Points and Wink Addictions, I’ve Finished My Hollyhock Art Quilt!!!!!-wink, wink!”

Cherry Blossoms, It’s Raining Pink!

“It’s Raining Pink”. This art quilt is from the perspective of looking up the trunk of an old twisted cherry tree. It carries the scars gained from many years. As you look up you see a cloud of pink above. Your eyes follow the slow drift of a pink petal as it finally reaches the ground below your feet, that is covered with pink. Is it raining pink?

Am I addicted to stress, 3 at once?

I’ve started work on 3 quilts, don’t ask me why. I usually take em one at a time.The silk background is completed and the silk art painting finished. I’ve just begun the thread work, which is now where near finished as you see. I’ll post updated pictures along the wayI added lots of pearl to my paint colors as I mixed them. So to continue the sparkle, shine theme I’m using quite a lot of metallic threads for the thread work.

Marion Barnett sent me one of her books, a great resource for fiber artists.

I’ve just recently received a book from the talented UK fiber artist Marion Marnett. Marion has written about a product named Lutradur. As far as I can determine, it seems to be relatively unknown here in the states, certainly used infrequently. .Marion has provided information about what it is,it’s properties & application. I’m curious to learn more, perhaps you will be too.

“Wonderland Revisited”, “Well I had fun”.

Here’s the latest art quilt I’ve been working on, like a busy little bee. love the wild abandon , the bold color. I gave myself permission go with my inclinations. It was made with the intention of a companion piece that harmonized with my last abstract quilt, “Down the Rabbit Hole”.

Is this a blog about art quilts or photopraphy?

As you may have knticed I have a lot of photos included in my art quilt blog pages, this is ovbously because I enjoy photographty and I enjoy making art quilts as well. I am sure you are all aware that I will soom be opening my my art web site. I’ll give more details later.

I plan on keeping my etsy shop open to carry all sorts of non art items

Impressionist Art Quilt; Impression Sunrise In theThe Garden

This impressionistic style reminds me of a painting. When the sunrise streaking the sky purple & pink .The light falls on the garden, filling it with color and light much as the silk used reflects color luminously I like to have my first cup of coffee in the garden, admiring the

It’s cold wet and froze. Need a little boost to get us through to spring?

As I sit here at the computer I can hear the sound of rain pounding my patio. The window shows a dark and gloomy sky. I don’t know about you, but I could use a little preview of spring right now… the sun’s rays, blue sky and spring’s offerings for this year.
