Well, we made up for it today. We had a surprise storm that dumped 6-8 inches.It was coming down fast and furious for awhile, especially in the morning, so all the schools were closed and our weekly FiberWorks meeting was also cancelled.
I decided to spend the time that I would have been at the meeting in my studio. I am going to the SAQA conference in April and one of the highlights of the Friday night banquet is the Silent Auction.
I had never made a piece for it before and thought that today would be the perfect day to get one done. They have to be 6" x 8" and will be mounted in a mat with a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" opening and then put in a cellophane sleeve.. I thought that one of my Garden Studies would be perfect. I went online to get all the info and the deadline for entering is tomorrow. Yikes! Better get busy.
This is what I came up with. Sunflower. I hope these bright happy colors will catch someone's eye.
I make these Garden Studies by using photos that I have taken in my garden, digitally altering them in Photoshop Elements, printing them on white fabric and then machine free-motion quilting.
Since it's Friday, I am inking up with Off the Wall Friday. Hop on over and see some other art work.
