I’ve been really busy so far this year (only two weeks but seems longer) organizing my studio and getting ready for all the hard work that will be coming out of it. I’m working on art quilts and making fabric baskets. I continue to draw and make collages in my art journals. Basically I am having so much fun playing with all kinds of materials. My latest quilt , which I finished yesterday, was for an architecture theme which I named: “WELCOME TO MY WORLD”. Houston is my hometown, so I am very familiar with the distinctive architectural areas of our city. I chose to show the reflection of various buildings on a pair of glasses. I started out with a paper collage in my art journal which I scanned onto fabric. It was machine quilted and hand beaded. You might even recognize some of the neighborhoods!
Houston or H-Town, is the way we refer to our city for those of you who are not from Texas. If you are a Lyle Lovett fan, he wrote a song about Texas called: That’s Right (You’re Not From Texas). Here is a link to the song if you would like to hear it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMhaehb5AnE
