These two just seem to go together!
Day 30 Yay!! Now I can take a rest. I feel like I’ve really grown as an artist. I like the work I did this challenge better than what I started with the last challenge in January. Leslie will have to do this again so I can keep improving! I almost doubled the number of people following my blog for which I am grateful. In means so much to me to have someone look at my creative efforts. I hope you will keep checking out what I’m doing in the days and weeks ahead.
I am especially grateful for all of you that sent such nice, supportive comments on my paintings. It has really given me the confidence to keep trying. I thank you for that. I will keep painting and I will keep quilting. And I will try to believe that the best is yet to come!
Here is my last painting for awhile. It is larger than the rest and I really tried to push myself to do my best work for the 30th painting. I love color, pumpkins, houses, funky birds and quilting. I tried to get them all in this last one.
Day 24. Can’t believe this challenge is almost over. The big question is: Will I keep on painting? I thought I would move on from the Fall theme, but I must admit I am a sucker for anything Fall-ish. This little painting is of some table decor I bought last year. They are so cute I couldn’t resist painting them. They stand about 6 inches tall and live on my piano at the moment. When I got out my Fall decorations box a few days ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find them. It’s often like that. I buy something, but after putting it away for a year, I forget all about it. So it was fun to experience the “new” find when I opened the box. I wonder what “new” Christmas stuff I will find in a couple of months.
I was playing around in ipiccy.com. It’s a free photo editing website I discovered through my Webinarts online class with Leslie Saeta. I love how this “sunshine” poster turned out. I used a pic of one of my original art quilts, adding text and a frame.
I designed and made this small (9″ x 12″) art quilt for a guild challenge. The applique is fused and then I embellished it with free motion decorative quilting.
