I really enjoyed participating in a week-long workshop with the talented artist Terry Jarrard-Dimond in Columbus, Ohio at the Quilt and Surface Design Symposium (QSDS). The topic explored was the art element of shape. These are two studies I completed using my hand-dyed fabrics. The one on the left explores some symbols representative of family life and the one on the right is an abstract figure study. They each measure about 40 inches across. It was a great week spent with some extra fantastic people, including art friend Linda Frost of Lawrence, Kansas. We went on a bus tour and saw some terrific exhibits. Tuesday night I rented a table at a bazaar event and sold some vintage and artistic type clothing that I have collected over time….it’s great to combine fun, travel and learning and it’s also nice to be home again with family and good friends.
