I have a long list of to do's, as everyone else does.. and I will not tell you how long it has taken me to finally paint ONE of these rockers.. I looked at them the other day, and could not stand one more moment of painting them in my head.. Just DO it Vivian.. So I dragged one into my studio and started to paint.. I will not even tell you how long it sat in the studio. I had to walk around it many times, because I had a quilt on my design wall.. I would paint a bit on the chair, and while it was drying, work on the quilt.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
