it takes a little while to get the momentum solidly in place. and finally i've found it....although i need to get back to the quilts soon. but the last few days in the paper room making these collage corkboards have been wonderful. i had a bit of trouble adjusting the composition to such a large size. these are poster size corkboards, and i had a hard time finding the right proportion. but i got there. and my other problem was pulling myself back....remembering that these aren't fine art collage on panel, but more simple and less intricate pieces of functional art. tonight we're going to meagan's to watch 'home alone' to get the christmas spirit in full swing....but i think i'll sneak out and head next door to the studio for a while if it's not too rude. i'm working on a fifth and i want to finish it tonight. i really don't want to stop.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
