Pending Artwork

My project when I was in Arkansas with my sister was to paint my fabric pages for a book that I am making. I challenged myself to work in a different color pallet than I usually work with. It took awhile before I found my "groove". The weather was perfect and I worked outside with nature. I made a portable laundry line to hang my pages to dry. The following photos are only half of what I painted. I find that I do better with my art projects if I have choices, extra for mistakes, and some to tear into smaller pieces for embellishments.

My sister had equally as much fun as she set up a sewing station with her Singer Featherweight on the deck.

After my project, I took a nap on the deck listening to her sewing machine hum away. That has to be the first nap outside ever....I never had an opportunity before.....what a great experience! (It wouldn't be the same in Midtown Tulsa!


I am definitely going to have fun making this book!

I love all your pages. What a wonderful day you had and how nice to work outside. I would love to have a big screened in porch to work on. Around here I could work outside 6 month out of the year. I hope to see those pages in your artwork soon. ")
