Sketch Book "Purse", Journaling
I took my sketch book with me, along with pens, paper, and brushes, some watercolor crayons etc.. Did I work with them?.. no, the week went too fast.. some excuse.. BUT I did make a "purse" to carry them in and keep them organized. The main area holds the big things, a smaller pocket in the front, which is hard to see, holds my brushes and pens.. A flap covers the whole area, and a strap to hang it over my shoulder.. Just need a glass of water and I am all set to sketch and paint. That was one thing I did finish at camp...
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.
