‘Tis the Season…

… for leaky roofs! We don’t get a lot of rain here but when we do there are always surprises, but that’s another story, I’ll spare you.

Last post I mentioned Susan Lenz because we each had pieces in the Visions Art Museum Day of the Dead exhibit. Not too long ago I sent Susan some vintage pieces that came to me via VAM. She has already used them in one of her art quilt pieces. Not only a talented artist, Susan is a wonderful writer and story telling. If you haven’t visited her blog, I would highly recommend it.

It’s always the season for creating art whether there’s rain, shine or snow! Yesterday I had the pleasure of teaching my Fabric and Fiber Collage class at VAM. The participants were a fun group and their collage pieces were inspiring to me! I seem to always learn something from the students. Here is a bit from the class…

Sometimes a loop can make all the difference.
The Director of VAM, Laura Mitchell, as she put it, “…in her happy place!”
The flower center for one person may make great petal tips for another.
One dragonfly or more? It’s up to each participant to decide for their piece.
Two and they don’t have to match!
It’s fun to share thoughts and ideas with each other.
Some were artists when they entered the gallery, everyone was when they left.
Not shy, just letting her lovely layers take front and center.
There were some wonderful surprises – This flower center for example.

Teaching, the prep, and all, can be exhausting, but seeing results like these makes it worth it! Thank you to each of the participants.

    All your students seem glad to have their creative juices flowing. I hope the rain has stopped flowing into your house. I laughed at the Laura Mitchell photo – decisions, decisions.
