Inspirations are found at times, such as during long walks through a garden, strolls along the beach at sunrise, or sightseeing on a trip to another state, or country! ~~~
Recently on a sunny, slightly warmer winter’s day, I took a break and got outside~~walking by the ice covered Duck Pond! These times experiencing the wonders of nature are part of the creative process…time to “see“…to think…to imagine…to experience new things…and
…to witness the art that Nature creates with the materials on hand!
Creativity IDEA!~~Take inspiration from Nature and create something this week from what is currently around you. For example, make a meal with only the ingredients you currently have in your kitchen and pantry! Or, think of things you can do, within your current situation, to create new solutions or possibilities in your work or business…or as a parent with your children.
Can you think of other ways that Nature’s artistic flair might inspire you? 🙂
After a long break from the Studio at the end of the year, with the busyness of celebrating several holidays, birthdays, and family events, I finally find myself back in the studio on a cold, snowy winter’s day….but feeling cozy inside and ready to work! 🙂
Ready to create Art & do Business for a New Year, 2019!…
I thought you might like to see the process of preparing to finish a design!
“Field at Toledo” is ready for a backing, layering the 3 layers~~top, batting, and backing, and pinning together the layers before the thread-painting and free-motion quilt stitching begins!
After a new art quilt is completed, I have a Photo Shoot…
Capturing an image and downloading it into Photoshop on my computer….. and using Canon’s Studio Pro software to edit and prepare the files is the next step in creating fine art prints and cards of the Original.
Once the files are ready, I individually print each print and card as needed on my Canon Pro 10 pigment ink printer, pack carefully, and then ship for delivery to each customer!
At this time, Open Edition, Signed Art Prints, as well as 5″ x 7″ Art Cards are available of several of my Original works of art! Here are just a few…
