Painting Finished!

I have finished the karate painting of my twin granddaughters.  All that's left to do is sign it, and spray sealer on it and then send it off in the mail.

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful comments as it progressed. I have started drafting the picture for doing it as a thread painting. Once I get it started, I'll post its progress.…

Progress!

I have been working on the karate painting of my twin granddaughters for a little while now. It is only the second portrait painting I have done and will be glad when I really paint faces without it taking weeks to get them to look human! 

I still have a little tweaking to do and them I'm going to call it done! My next step will be to start drafting the thread painting and/or art quilt I hope to do using the painting as a guide. Must say this was fun to do as I love the bright colors…

Painting progress

The painting of my twin granddaughters karate picture is slowly progressing and I'm liking how it is coming together. The more I look at it, the more I want to do it as a thread painting and am looking at how I want to undertake that challenge. I may have to make it a little larger than the 16" x 20" that is its current size to really be able to give it the detail that I want.

Thanks to all who have been very encouraging about my art work.…

Progress on Dream Inspired Project

I have made some progress on my project. Have been adding details, which is slow going as I am hand sewing on the details in some parts. The little sea anemones have been sculpted with the tops done in thread. They will be painted once everything is assembled. I have a little sea horse that I need to paint and attach as well.…

From Thread Painting to Painting!

My creative spurt seems to be growing. While trying to think of where I want to go with the needle felted/thread painting project, I have created a few paintings and have been working on a thread painting. The two paintings are in acrylics and are of a sea turtle and a winter scene called garden gate. The thread painting I've entitled Spirit Wolf and has really been a challenge to work on, albeit a very enjoyable challenge.

May your creative juices flow and many enjoyable hours pass…

High Fiber—Heddles and Puddles

Well, I'm finally, finally, back to weaving. On Tuesday I rethreaded the heddles on my floor loom, using the warp that was already on the loom left over from a previous project.





I had to change the tie-up, too, to weave what I wanted, but it was easier than I thought it would be. I'm using various scraps of…

Some Creative times

I have finally been able to work on some creative endeavors. Thought I would post a few pictures, nothing earth shattering, just being glad to be able to do something positive for a change.

I was able to finish a UFO that I had started in 2002. When my husband, Frank, passed away, I had put it aside. Now seemed like a good time to finish it. I did the quilting on my new mid-arm and was surprised at just how quickly it seemed to get finished. The picture is before I put the binding on…

Relay For Life

Well, the elephant baby quilt I was going to make got put on hold.  I was asked to make a Memory Quilt for Relay For Life to be auctioned off at our event we had on the 13th.  My friend Gena and I had never done a Relay quilt before so this was a new experience for both of us. Gena is the main designer of our…
