Sonata Series

The present is imbued with tremendous energy.  It is what is.
~Natalie Goldberg



I have decided to name this brushwork series "Sonata".  By definition sonata is a musical composition for one or two instruments, usually consisting of three or four independent movements.  In my visual sonatas I have chosen to use ink line with fabric in 3 - 4 colors, often complementary and not counting the black and white.  I am aiming for simplicity with movement.

Here are the newest additions-

Stitch Dialectic Flows

Sunday's reception for the SAQA regional exhibit Stitch Dialectic was wet and wonderful.  A great turnout despite the rainy afternoon.  I am always amazed at the talent of the artists in our region.  The quilts were cohesive, and the extensive exhibit flowed well.  Hats off to curator and co-SAQA Rep, Laura Bisagna!

Stitch Dialectic runs through April 24th at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts.

Here is a taste of the exhibit for your enjoyment-

More photos of the show here courtesy of the SAQA SoCal SoNev blog.  A video is coming soon, so stay tuned! 

I was glad I made the train journey (on a weekend with track work) to see the work and to catch up with artist friends.  Had bonus time with family, too, with my sister in attendance.  A great day.

I was pleased to learn that my quilt "Pacifying Passion" was included in the April/May 2016 issue of Quilter's Newsletter in the article about SAQA's Go Red for Women campaign!  SAQA, partnering with the American Heart Association to bring attention to cardiovascular disease in women, displayed red quilts by SAQA members on the SAQA Pinterest page.  Happy to see Quilter's Newsletter promoting this campaign.

Slow Art and...

I had a lovely, bustling week with friends visiting.  As much as I delighted in all the gatherings and exploring sights around town, I am happy to have the quiet time once again... settling into my routine and back to art making.  A good day for it, too, with rain falling outside.  (I'm happy that I planted those tomato seedlings in the garden in time!)
 




This Saturday, April 9th, is Slow Art Day, an international event to encourage celebrating art by viewing it slowly.  Check out the Slow Art Day website to find a participating venue near you (there are 188 offered).  For those of you in Los Angeles, my friend Carol Rossi is the host at the Hammer Museum.  Have fun!

My own slow art making projects continue with the latest sketch... stitching progresses.
