watercolor on vintage feedsacks

pretending i'm in school again. like homework with no deadlines. i miss my texile rendering class, embellished surfaces class, and my fashion illustration classes. an awful lot. tonight i've been painting on vintage feedsacks and wrapping old buttons in yarn. and making doily stencils. all while listening to my brother-in-law play in his high school football game on the radio. while my husband reads and drinks beer. and i drink red wine. t.g.i.f.

Hello, I come to your blog sometimes when I'm feeling a little bit down or lonely (especially now that I'm halfway around the world from my family and friends) and it never fails to cheer me up! It never fails to make me think positively and to make me be optimistic about what is to come- be it easy or difficult. So, thank you.

luce has said it so perfectly. you make me smile every time- you make me happier!!
i love that you are finding time to be creative- it is such a good feeling to create leisurely, and not because there is a deadline. i think i forgot what that was like and it took a very long time to remember. it is blissful. beautiful illustrations & i love your painted and stenciled feed sacks!

the drawings are so pretty... the eyes are especially well drawn! the colors look really good and the printing on the paper before adds a nostalgic touch.

ooooh, I miss school too! Sometimes I just make up crazy guidelines for myself to create something and pretend it's an assignment ... like picking a page of news paper, making a story from cut out words and illustrating it

Sounds idyllic!
I too actually miss homework (something i thought i would never say)
Especially art, graphics and english homework, you dont realise how important they are to keep your creativity flowing and alive at the time, it's not until you leave that many years later it seems a chore sometimes to be creative, which to me is really sad.
I think everyone should set themselves a little creative homework now and again.

Sometimes I pretend I'm in school and write myself lists like I used to. I think I enjoy life better this way - with a slight obsessive compulsive approach.

My current list has 25 items on it. At the moment, I am doing none of them... :)

I love the watercolor (?) on the fabric. Your illustrations are definitely some of my favorites (love your mixed mediums) - and watercolor is probably my first aesthetic preference, so putting it on a new texture just makes this blog that much more exciting for me!
