A Little Love
Off to School
I think the work of Dale Chihuly is amazing!
I get great energy by looking at images of his pieces, some of which I include here .
This sampler is inspired by the colors and patterns of his glass.
As I painted, I thought about watercolor as both a transparent and opaque medium
Sampler quilts are notable for having unique patterns without any repeat of individual blocks within the layout. I find creating watercolor "samplers" to be especially freeing , making these projects both inventive and meditative. The painted patchworks here echo the colors and /or designs of some of my favorite vessels!
