Hi Bev you are so sweet, thank you so much for going through my work; so happy that you like it. I try to use all my imagination and fantasy! I love your work too, yours is more professionally done. Take care xx
thanks bev. Yes, I have in the last 8 months started with the rug hooking. Though I use yarn as we dont have cut strips here of wool fabric and the machine is really epensive. So using yarn is fun as well. I am still with baby steps in that zone, and it can be kinda painstaking to finish one piece. I have finished two, hoping to start my next one in this month still. have an order, and thankfully it is not for a very big one. The part I still need to get the hang of is , is the backing.
I love your work it is so very colorful and cheery and made me smile it looks like art work i would find in a children s book. Very different and wonderful. Also like your doll as I used to make cloth and sculpy dolls. Multi talented lady.
Oh Mz Bev I hear you loud and clear...I feel as tho there isn't enough time in a day to do things and I could be doing more productive things too....but hey, maybe being on your ipad or surfing the net is productive....LOL...as far as getting up in years, well Im gonna be 63 next month so I am looking to an early retirement....work sucks lately so I look forward to retiring...
Thank you Bev for sharing your thoughts about your creative process. Oh do tell. I don't create pieces I will always like too. When that happens, I put that piece away and let it sit and then come back to it later....that could even be months later....lol...I can pretty much feel right from the start whether I am gonna like a piece or not...don't know what it is but I can tell....Lately I have been struggling with inspiration too....before, I had so many ideas and concepts for new art works but now I struggle on what to draw....I could see things and get inspiration immediately but not now....think its an age thing....lol....now that Im off, I am trying to draw daily but its not really where I want it to be.....still struggling....oh well, that's been the story of my art for sometime now....takes me longer to get into art mode....hahaha
Thanx for the suggestion Bev....I am more times in a rut than productive...lol....no matter how hard I try to get creative, it just doesn't work...its just me....lol...I have the week off so Im trying to stay creative...got works sitting on the sidelines that need to be completed so trying to stay focused....Aloha
