Dee Hilton owns the Wildflower Boutique in Ouray. She carries an assortment of my original paintings, prints, cards and magnets in her shop. I happened to show her one of the patchwork bags that I had made, and she loved it. She gave me some fabric with some of her favorite things depicted:
Flowers, coffee and wine. So I made this bag for her:
|This is a cross stitch that Dee created many years ago. I added some beads for bling.|
|I cut down a wine bag that Dee gave me to create this patch|
|Flowers are another favorite thing of Dee's|
|Earth tones are Dee, no pinks or purples|
|Dee loves coffee and used to own a coffee roasting establishment|
|One side of completed bag|
|The other side|
|Dee loves her personalized patchwork bag|
I have not totally forgotten about painting. Here is a quick sketch I did of Aspen in spring using a technique that is a favorite of artist, Sachin Naik. According to Sachin, landscapes are simply patterns of light and shadow.
I have been experiencing some problems with my computer. For over two weeks, I could not get to any of my documents or other files. After many hours on the phone with Apple Care, it is finally working properly again. I have a love/hate relationship with computers, so I nearly gave up on this blog and everything else concerning computers and the internet. But, for now, I am back "on the air."
