Changes - Time, Season, Growth, Attitude.
On a brighter note, I'm thrilled that spring is coming. It will take me a couple of weeks to get used to the new time but I love the brightness of the light and the trees ready to burst into green. I was amazed to see the flowering trees driving to Dallas Friday and noticed little things in the yard over the weekend, including how much better it looked after Ashley, Frank & I worked a few hours Sat. Yesterday there were 5 Cardinals and a Jay fussing at the feeder....Birdfood is on my list today.
I hadn't been out and about much lately so Friday was a welcome excursion. The Dallas Quilt Show is a spring highlight every year and I was not disappointed. I probably would not have gone if not commited to sit as a volunteer for the Dallas Area Fiber Artists special exhibit. Isn't it interesting that obligations met can give us just what we need? The DAFA exhibit was a beautiful selection of work.
The small piece top left was in another special exhibit called "12 Square Inches" sponsored by the "Twisted Stitchers" group. I was included at the invitation of Deborah Boschert. I feel honored to be in such great company.
The Tulip piece got finished on Thurs. It is for an exhibit sponsored by the Visual Arts Society of Texas called "Merging Visions". This will go with a poem titled "Tulip as Role Model" by J. Paul Holcomb of the Denton Poet's Society. The show will hang in Denton libraries during April.
I'm hoping that all the changes in the air will include renewed creative energy and I'll have more art to show in the weeks to come.
