Welcome to my Blog, A little art, and a lot of Friendship
Monday, June 20, 2011
The sun finally peaked through a bit when we drove into Solvang. We have not have been in this area in years.. The stores are overwhelming with the variety of items.. We bought a pair of fun socks for a friend.
I focused on looking at the variety of textures and designs on the buildings. Wished I had some rubbing materials for this grate.. Do you think they would miss it... guess so....
All the wonderful timbers and colors of the buildings.. Lots of fun,, gotta look out for the cars when crossing the street.. Thankfully, my husband keeps an eye on where I am wandering, and keeps me from danger. Like stepping off the curb at the wrong moment to get a close up!
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.
