|one of my paintings last week|
I am joining my fellow T stands for Tuesday bloggers today... and today I am working on Three pieces of fabric art... T is also for Three...
I have an artistic temperament, and we like odd numbers in composition, so the eyes keep moving around your art piece instead of bouncing back and forth between two things. Three. often a lucky number.
I remember fondly drinking cafe con leche or Cuban coffee in Ybor City at lunch. Strong and sweet, milky and smooth. We often met at there for lunch at one of the Cuban restaurants, and always a coffee con leche.
Back to my three projects for today.
There are several styles of quiltmaking these days, traditional, modern, art... I enjoy them all and while my first quilt in the 80's was traditional, my second one was an art quilt. I traced around the little hands of the girls I was watching as a nanny and used them in an art quilt. Today fabric is just another medium like paint to me.
I like to work using the colors of a season, and we're approaching Fall (despite the temps being in the 90's today again) I love Fall, and fall colors, rich browns and rusts, dark red, golden yellow, bold blue skies the complement to these organic brown tones.

A lovely plan is unfolding... but like any project there are messy phases...
this is a good sign... I am working in studio, making choices, choosing committing to a cut of fabric, sewing and pressing, adding to a composition while listening to an audio book, The Dutch House

my drink choices don't change... coffee, cold water, iced tea (cinnamon at the moment), possibly wine in the early evening, and sparkle water at night. The days are often the same if I'm lucky no disasters will occur ( can you hear me knocking on wood?)
Just another week... lifting my cup to you my friends... wish we were able to chat in person...
