Reason 1 - A personal connection to the subject matter
I have selected two of the miniature quilts based on David Hockney's work. These lovely pieces of work reminded me of a very enjoyable evening spent at the RA exhibition. I love colorful landscapes and I like the unconventional colours which are in these pieces and in Hockney's work. Anybody ever seen blue trees?
|Liz Clark - Hockney's 'Winter timber'|
|Susan Wakefield - A Smaller Picture|
Reason 2 - A style and/or technique that you seek to develop
This piece was the winner of the Quilters Guild challenge 'What does Britain mean to you?'
Reason 3 - Blown away by the skill shown
This quilt was absolutely amazing! Why didn't this get a prize or a commendation?
Reason 4 - It's a subject that keeps catching my eye
|Margreth Saterhall - Catwalk|
Personal Challenge: Start sketching people...Mmm....just writing these words makes me feel slightly uncomfortable - not feeling hopeful that this will be fulfilled anytime soon!
I could go on...but I think I've given myself enough food for thought and enough challenges for now!
