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…

In the Studio~The Materials an Artist Chooses

Today in the studio, as I worked I wondered if people ever asked, “What are the differences between creating a picture using cloth vs paints?

Artists work using a variety of different materials~for example, a potter molds smooth clay, a sculpture chisels cool stone or textured wood, and a painter brushes on flowing paints. And, many times it is a material’s qualities that determine what type of art, or “medium”, an artist chooses to work with.

As a textile artist, I am drawn to cloth and threads…the textures as you touch it…the softness of the fabrics…

And its warmth as it is smoothed with an iron!

The background of “Field of Flowers in Toledo” is done and the “paints” for the flowers are being prepared. I’ve enjoyed my time in the studio today as I’ve quietly worked with beautifully colored and textured cloth.

Purple Flowers

Though, I also have my Garden Hat ready, and have spent time imagining planting our flower beds very soon!!   🙂

Garden Hat is Ready!

In the Studio…Changing Locations

Warm sunny days finally arrived and I moved my studio work to the front porch!!  It felt heavenly….

Warm breezes through the trees, birds happily singing, and inspirations all around!
