Wired Up


Nothing new to post because I am blocked, stumped, at a standstill - and everything else descriptive of feeling drained with my imagination on vacation. This is a piece I did about 4 years ago when I was doing art quilting assemblages. I remember when I was painting the canvas that is the background of this piece. It just flowed and became what it is without a lot of thought. Those times when our hands are driven by another force are the best, aren't they?


Forgot the fountain of youth - I'd like to bottle creative adrenaline and drink from it when necessary!

I totally sympathize! I hate it when I get an idea, start it, and then get stumped. May be time to rest a bit?

You'll be okay - funky times are the fuel of those times when you can't work fast enough. Keep working, though, because a "stumped" piece sometimes leads to a masterpiece.

When my imagination is on vacation I usually make a semi-traditional quilt and while I am working, ideas flow.

this quilt assemblage makes me think of Frank Lloyd Wright's designs...what was your inspiration for it?

Wool-gathering days often produce seeds without you're knowing. Going through old work and supplies is a good place to start. So is going for a walk. Take your sketch book, your camera, and let your subconscious stroll.
