I love the month of February! I turn another year older and enjoy celebrating my special day with my Mom. This year there was snow on my Birthday and I enjoyed a winter walk through the woods. Snow is so beautiful when it is still on the trees and covers everything with a pristine white.
I love celebrating Valentine's Day too and seeing hearts everywhere!
Happy February and Valentine's Day!
I have created this blog to share with the collectors of my art what goes in to creating my paintings. As you know almost every watercolor painting includes a quilt. I like to say that I "quilt with my paintbrush." Here I will share photos of quilts I see at all the quilt shows I exhibit at around the country. I will also include what I see in my travels and wanderings and anything that brings me inspiration along the way. I want to share my story with you. I am so happy and blessed to have so many that collect my work. The joy you bring me by all your wonderful comments on my art keeps me painting and looking forward to my next inspiration. I have been fortunate to view many beautiful quilts. I am posting photos from one of my favorite shows in July at the Hershey Quilt Odyssey Show. I loved the color combinations in the quilts they were bright and absolutely stunning.
My big trip of the year was in September as a speaker at the first International Patchwork Conference held in Kiev, Ukraine. The wonderful quilters from the Ukraine and Russia made beautiful quilts, embroidery, dolls, and stunning clothing. they are talented and all a great pleasure to meet!
