A gift and challenges


First, I'd like you to look at Yevgenia Watts blog Watercolored Hands. She did a portrait of me which I consider a treasured gift. A while back, without knowing her,  I had given Yevgenia an Over the Top award because I so admired her art. At some point she mentioned that she would be in Sacramento and we were able to meet for a short visit. She is so talented. To me, meeting internet friends is another bonus of joining EDM. If anyone else is in this part of the world, let me know.

Here are four challenge with only three more to draw for this month.
A glass and anything I wanted to draw, which was my violet which is blooming again.

 This book is a little tricky to understand. The cover is a quilt block, Quilter's Fan, which is chipboard covered with hand dyed fabric. It opens from from both sides. Insides are pages created by five other artists. This was a round robin project. I chose the subject, Threads, and the layout. Each person added pages that was their interpretation of the topic.

Today I went to my figure drawing session and since I can draw anything I want for the 28th challenge, this is my submission.

Have a pleasant Memorial Weekend. There is finally sunshine here is Northern California. We will enjoy Every Day.

You do such varied work- it's just lovely. I'm an ex quilter myself- so I'm always drawn to anything fabric. I love your spirit and your enjoyment of art.

Nice stuff - my favorite is the glass. It has character, and I like the soft colors.
