Last weekend at the DeLand Outdoor Festival I met a lovely lady who makes quilts. After talking with her about using one of her pieces in a painting, I found a small table runner with beautiful cool colors of blue teal and lavenders and arrange to purchase the quilt. To my surprise at the end of the show, she brought it over to me as a gift and asked only that I send her a picture of the painting (which will include her quilt) when finished. Her quilting business is called Unique Design by Linda K. I love getting something new and with it the challenge of seeing what I can do with it in a painting. So here is the still life arrangement I am currently working with. The multifaceted pitcher along with the luscious colors of the quilt is going to be a challenge but well worth it.
Teaching is going very well and my classes are growing with new students. Now I am trying to make room for everybody in the studio so we are not tripping over each other. The Saturday class is full and the Tuesday class is filling too; I am thinking of adding another class day. In addition, I would like to add a couple of workshops to my teaching schedule during the fall of this year. So, if your art league or art group would like to schedule me for a workshop please contact me for more information.
