What I Imagine…

In my last post, I asked readers what they imagined when looking at my new color palette of fabrics? So today, I will tell you what I imagine looking at those colors~~

~~~~Sea Images!~~~~

… the swirly, watery patterns in tropical, sunny bright hues of yellow, orange, greens, and blues, plus many more!!  🙂

And, I imagine my next piece in this series to be–Fractured Fish #2!

In 2014 I had a solo exhibit, Lifeweavings-A Creative Journey, during our town’s ArtWalk. It included many of my past works of art, along with new ones, that illustrated many of my inspirations gathered over time in life. 

This small piece, which I almost decided not to even show, ended up being one of my most popular designs! Immediately more than one person wanted the original and another bought a print of this piece, Fractured Fish #1.

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.  🙂 ]
