Part of the palette of fabrics I painted in Texas for the Boundary Waters series.
I have some inquiries if my Virtual Studio at Make It University area sponsored by Cloth Paper Scissors magazine at International Quilt Festival-Chicago means that it will be online. Alas, or thank heavens, no. A Virtual Studio means that you will feel as though you are visiting my painting studio while at IQF-Chicago.
Actually it will be better than my real painting studio which is in my unfinished basement. So I usually don’t do any painting in the winter – too cold and damp.
But I am ready to go in my Virtual Studio after painting a 100 yards of Kona cotton during my residency in Texas during January and February.
The fabric (sample above) I painted in Texas was purposefully less “layered” than what I usually do in keeping with Boundary Waters theme.
I will be doing my usual layers of surface design (see April 4 post) in Chicago.
I have received word from Pokey Bolton that Createx has donated two big boxes of Createx acrylic paint for me to use. How generous of them!
