Another sunny Sunday, that’s 2 in a row now! Tomorrow’s forecast is a return to rain, but that might not be all bad. I got a lot of gardening done today but rainy days are perfect for spending in the studio. I did manage to get out of the garden, clean up and visit friends at 195 Pemberton Arts Studios for their summer solstice open studio on Sunday.
It was great fun to catch up and see the work they had been doing.
A number of my life drawing friends have studios in this wonderful building. I loved seeing their “other” work . Michael and David had a chance to visit and view some of Michael oil paintings.
There is such a wonderful energy in the building all these talented artists share, it was inspiring to be there. As soon as I got home I went to work.
The plan is all done, the measurements are calculated….
and the pieces cut. This is when my comfy chair comes in really handy for things other than sitting! I stitched the pieces into strips and have given everything a good press. As I was running out of steam, I laid out the strips that will make up the background for this piece across the counter in the workroom.
I know better than to start stitching things together when I am tired! so I left everything in place and will wait for the morning to make sure I still like the layout.
Hi Catherine, I love the colour scheme. I usually prefer bright, strong colours but this combination is just so warm and inviting! I can’t wait to see what you do next!
PS – I’ve started to sew again to – C & G work will start soon as well – you were right – very good displacement activity!
