Already into week 7. Amazing how fast time goes by. I feel older by the minute now-a-days.
I hope to put the backing together for the leaves piece, I am now calling it Sorrows of the Frozen Forest for the fact that the retreat was cancelled due to a pipe bursting in the main room and flooding the hallways to the rooms.
I am looking to my next Masters Painting Series. I need a better name for it. I am intrepreting some interesting paintings in fabric. I am loving it and want to try some more Matisse and some other artists. A friend has some interesting art pieces in his office featuring the relationship between man nd woman. He has a new poster from an exhibit. I spent all of last week googling Paulo Longo and trying every convolution of his name. I barged in on Monday with my camera to take a photo of the darned name!
There are 5 or 6 Matisse prints I want to work on. And LeeAnn came up with an idea that naturally have to look into.
She is a member of a local group that chooses an artist each month to intrepret. They meet in Massachusetts so I can't make those meetings! LOL. That drive would be a killer!
We tossed around the creation of an online group. Limited number of people. Or not. Intrepreting an artist, any of their works, in small format as opposed to a large quilt thing.
In my Fiber Exploration Group, we have 6 people and work small. It works well. No matter how busy we are, a small 8 x 10 piece is doable. Of course, there are no punishments if you don't have a piece that month!
Would anyone be interested? Art and quilting. What could be more exciting!
And don't you just want to have a Klimt Kiss?
For Valentines Day?
