Don't Forget, 24" x 30", Arts on Douglas Gallery this weekend.
Isn't it amazing how fast a sunset or sunrise changes? Sometimes I wish I could burn the images of how it changes into my memory so that I wouldn't forget. Like watching you kids grow up! Simultaneously, so slow and so fast.
Like Clearwater, that I did a few years ago, I did Don't Forget with hardly any paint. It reminds me of the fabric bowls that I did with my son a few weeks ago.
I've been doing a lot of research about pattern design and pattern design artists. I just adore my collection of fabrics and I'm entertaining the idea of training myself to make my own. I started sewing when I was 5, so as a child of the 70's, patterns are in my upbringing. My ancestors, on both sides of my family, were French Canadians that moved to Rhode Island to work in the textile mills during the Textile Revolution, so textiles are in my DNA. I've created with them for years; sewing them, painting on them, painting with them. I think I'm ready to design them!
