As some of you know lately I’ve been struggling with the fact that for my painted, mixed media pieces I like to work small – under the double digit threshold. I opened up an email this morning from Tonya www.lazygalquilting.blogspot.com who is a fellow participant in www.planet.textilethreads.com Her note quietly encouraged me to ‘stay true to myself’ and to create the work that I am driven to produce. In other words, try not to control it (hey, there’s a concept for me).
Above is another 4x6’er I created last year. Maybe I could work on presenting these in a larger format – attach them to fabric frames then to painted canvases? This way I could have my cake and eat it too (carrot cake with cream cheese frosting please).
