Rejected, but not dejected!

I received notification from The Foundry Gallery that they decided against using my Lincoln or Poe  in their August show.  Oh well.  I am still hopeful to hear good news  from the St. Augustine Gallery next week.

Yesterday Tom and Elizabeth and I visited my Lincoln at the Carroll County Arts Council.

kids and lincolnHe seems to be doing well. 🙂

I haven’t been sitting back just hoping for success, though.  I have a few art pieces that I am tweaking, and will share soon.  And I also heard some good news from the Carroll County Historical Society (they have had two of my larger pieces for sale at their store for a few years now).  They saw my work at the Art’s Council and asked me to submit more pieces for sale.  I did another view of a favorite subject of mine – my neighbor’s barn.  The second one is a log home that has fallen into disrepair.  I just fell in love with that stone chimney.



I have always loved the process of transforming pieces of fabric into quilts. For years I collected scraps, just to be sure I'd have the right piece for the project at hand. Eventually, as my skills progressed, my hobby grew into art. I moved from simple quits, to 'landscape quilting' and then eventually onto portrait work. I am new to the art field and am self-taught, learning from my mistakes as well as from my successes. I create my images using only fabric and thread. I remain true to this limitation for two reasons; first, I love the challenge of finding new ways to depict ever more challenging subjects. Second, fabric work remains my true love. I enjoy the hunt for fabrics; where other artists might blend oil paints, I love finding that perfect shade or pattern for a specific need. I refer to my style as "gestalt impressionism" for one needs to take a step back from my pieces to get the whole picture. My view point changes by what is influencing me at the time. Recently I've begun to focus on the journey of the individual. I enjoy working on portraits of people whom I feel have lead interesting lives.
