Autumn Days in the Studio~

Coffee in a Great Pottery Mug!

Today has been a wonderful warm Autumn day! I sat on the porch with my morning coffee…(in my new “birthday” pottery mug from the art shop at Heartwood~~Abingdon, VA)…

And heard a very loud wild turkey in the woods around our house…He never came into view, but it definitely “sounded” like Fall, reminding me that Thanksgiving is just around the corner too!

After some reading, dreaming, and planning, I came inside to work in the studio~~inspired by my time of contemplation!

Currently in the Studio, I’m finishing a small art quilt…designing the small yellow, fractured fish for the next Sea Images piece…and preparing “Fields at Toledo” for layering, threadpainting, and quilting~~

What are your Autumn inspirations?

In the Studio….

The warm sunny, Spring days feel wonderful! This week the activity ~ blooming of flowers and budding of the trees in the forest~~ are encouragements inside the studio, as well as outside!

Purple flowers are being “painted” on the stems in, “Flowers in Field at Toledo”….

“Painting” Purple Blossoms!

And the other new piece I am working on is the next piece in the series, “Sea Images”. I’ve been gathering fabrics and selecting the new color palette! Always fun to begin…
