Experimenting With New Styles And Color Combinations

Recently I have been experimenting with different styles of painting, using DVDs, art magazines and books.
This very quickly painted landscape is from a lesson by Stephen Quiller on his DVD, Atmosphere & Light.
Stephen Quiller is a well known artist from Creede, Colorado.  He is known for bold colors and textures.

In this unfinished work, I followed a lesson by Naomi Tydeman on depicting a landscape at sunset

Today is my great niece, Mia's 5th birthday.  For the occasion I made her this cupcake apron

I found a towel with a similar cupcake theme, cut it down and buttoned it to the apron
I hope it fits her, my pattern was for an adult, so I had to guess at how much to cut it down.

Good blog! I like seeing your work. The apron was so cute. I am sending it on to a friend who has a 9 month old grand niece and she quilts for her all the time. She may like this for Ayla as she gets older.
