Refrigerator words, Haiku
Yes, this is my refrigerator door... Little magnetic words.. and the photo is not me, I saw it in a magazine add and that is my figure in my mind, and in my fantasy I would wear white.. in real life, it is jeans, T. shirt ( turtle necks in the winter) and tennis shoes.. That magazine photo also fits with the houses you see in Arch. Digest.. But in real life, I get messy in the studio, and while the paint dries I might wander out side and pull weeds.. Does not work to dress in White!!!! But back to the refrig, magnetic words.. The grand kids loved writing little poems when they visit and when we are waiting for the microwave to do its thing, my husband and I plunk down little sayings.. The best ones were lost when the computer crashed.. but I am starting a new collection.
"Dream creek weed, happy winter rain, in the night and shiver."
"Blue grass beneath the purple wind, journeys through the wild summer garden" I am not counting to see if they are haiku's, but it is fun while the water boils..
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.
