It has been a very busy month already. I am sharing with you the latest piece for my solo exhibition in June titled “Give Me Time Forever II”. I am very happy with the way it turned out. When I first selected the hand-dyed fabric and began to apply oil sticks I wasn’t too sure if I was achieving enough contrast. But once I added metallic threads to provide definition to the circles I could see the potential. With the soaring eagle silhouettes the piece came together just as I had envisioned it in my original sketches. I will upload it to the gallery on the website soon – but you are getting the first glance!
Speaking of the first glance, or better “view”… I received word that my promotional video for the Most Inspiring Quilt Teacher of 2011 is up on uTube now. Those of you following my blog for a while might remember January 12th when I shared that I was getting ready for an online interview from my studio. I wasn’t too sure how it was going to work out at the time. With our satellite connection unpredictability is the norm. Also, I had never taken part in an interview of this kind before. After viewing the promotional video my nervousness is gone and I anticipate a great event alongside the other nominees. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think!
