I had a busy and productive week-end. Yesterday was our spring critique for the group of Oregon fiberartists that I am part of. Marci Rai McDade, former Fiberarts editor and now Surface Design Journal editor, was our guest critic. She lives near me and when I asked her about a possible critic for us, she volunteered.
Every critic we have had has a different emphasis in their comments. Marci, as an editor, was most interested in the story that the art told. She also commented on visual impact and design elements. I had my Walking with Scooter and Mr C piece. She thought it was very successful, but was put off by my black screen prints of Scooter and Mr. C. I see her point and I wish that I had put the screen prints on the base fabrics so that they were not so prominent.
It is not as obvious in the photo as it is in person. I also had another piece that I am almost finished with. I will show that later.
Today, after church, I had a phone meeting with a consultant who is helping me conquer the Filemaker database for Artists Among Us. I have a load of inventory to enter in the system and we worked out details for upgrading it and making it more user friendly.
It was gorgeous weather this week-end. I think we will have one more beautiful day and then it will get rainy again.
I managed to get 6 more 3 x3s done. I am almost caught up.
Back to watching Mad Men.
Third one from top, purple with spirals is my favorite. So close to moonsnails in my own work. Yes, a great couple of days in Portland. Threw scraps of yarn onto trees for birds to use in nestmaking. What must the runners on Terwilliger Blvd. think?
I’m loving the purple series!
Hey! It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. It is hard not to be happy when the sun makes such an outstanding appearance. I am liking your 3 x 3’s. Wishing you a beautiful week. xo
