Quilts

While I was in New York, I got to see an amazing quilt exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum. It was incredible. I posted a few pictures from the exhibit on my flickr page. I would literally live in this museum if I could. I just wished I was one of those really rich donors that could just say “take me to the archives, please.” I can only imagine the amazing art hidden in their storage.

Last night I was just sitting around in my room because that’s what I do these days in Yazoo City. So I cleaned off my painting table (took about an hour because I live in cramped quarters right now!) and turned on some Dexter and decided to pull out my paints. I painted four 5×5 in paintings of some of my quilt inspired doodles. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them yet. It just felt so good to paint again.

Oh! And I’m sure you were wondering how Weezie behaved with me painting with watercolors. (We all know how much she loves to play with water and paper!) She behaved like a little angel once I shooed her away from the water bucket. She just sat and watched me the entire time. She’s my perfect little punkin.

  1. Love them! I love that they aren’t perfectly masked and the areas that blend. I’m so glad the exhibition/trip inspired these. The colors and image in #2 are my fav – I’m very attracted to it visually.
