I took a couple of weeks off from the photo challenge, but how could I resist this week? Color? Really? I adore color. I crave color. I breathe color. Color is incredibly important! So, I thought I’d do the challenge. Check here for more entries. Personally I can hardly wait to start going through them. But back to my picks. On a normal challenge I can’t contain myself to one photo. I’m fighting to limit this selection, but I’m not winning the battle. I thought I’d show a few things around my house – things I enjoy every day. The first photos show some things in my studio – slippers and textiles over the studio closet doorway, my most current sewing project, fabric scraps that are too wonderful to dispose of, a bucket of pearl cotton embroidery thread and of course Kush the cat hanging out on a fabric shelf. (I didn’t follow the challenge instructions EXACTLY – I was just too excited to read it until I’d finished. Oops!)
Here are details of some of the artwork that surrounds me – work by Ann Dunbar (paper and ceramic art piece “Adoration of the Stove”), Sue Benner (fused and painted silk wall quilt), Alan Lerner (face of ceramic cube), John Garrett (metal, bead and wire “Slipper Basket”) and Arthur Shilling (oil painting “Mother”).
I’ll finish with a couple of pictures of my tile work on the house exterior. I’ve may have posted them before, but I can’t help myself. I love color. I love this challenge!
