A painter mixes many different paints to create a color palette to use on a new painting, while as a textile artist I also gather a new palette of colors…fabric paints…to create my next art quilt!

It would be fun to hear what You (and other Readers!) can imagine this color palette being used for? Please let us know in Comments below!

[And, in the next post I will tell you what I imagine…and how I plan to use these wonderfully colored fabrics.  🙂 ]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bits of “News” & Inspiration!

We are in the middle of winter here in the mountains with a foot of new snow on the ground and sub-zero temperatures! Like much of the U.S., this is not our typical weather even for this time of year. So I am hibernating and in the studio a lot is getting done! 🙂

I’d like you to know about the new Facebook Page for the studio, which will be used to give glimpses of works-in-progress, bits of studio news, and even alert people to new blog posts! Be sure to check it out at Joni Beach on Facebook!

I will end by sharing some new inspiration that was recently gathered….Hope your day is filled with some new wonders!
