Observations on life & art and the inspirations I see around me

Color bits

Like most people I have a personal color palette. Turquoise, orange, and green have been dominant for some time. I throw in reds and purples fairly regularly and this time of year with all the flowers in the garden center I can go really crazy. A while back Suzanne came up to play and we did wet felting combined with needle felting. I call it fusion felting. This piece is telling me it wants to grow bigger. I'm interviewing other fabrics to "play well" with it. Like the garden, it will be interesting to see how it grows.
When I sat down to do this post I was going to write about the biggest color project I've done in a long time but I left the camera down stairs and I'm too tired to retrieve it.
The painters finished up this afternoon and I was outside working most of the day. There's lots of cleaning, planting and reorganizing projects to get done before summer chases me back inside.
I did a bit of dyeing for wardrobe fabrics last week and am pleased with how well they all go with my new spring shoes. The shoes are a real treat as they are very comfortable and a bargain too. Sierra Trading Post. One of the artists in San Antonio had them on and said she had 5 pair. My budget can't do that all at once but I definitely go back. They also arrived in 2 days.

Thanks Julie. I wish I'd done more and sure hope everyone who can will support this by purchasing art.
