Nature, art and everyday living. Finding joy in simplicity.
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Emily hasn't been her usual cheerful self lately, although she has been laying extra-close to me (if that's possible.) It has been an inspiring time for me and this little bit of snow lately has really lifted my spirit too. I have been thinking of a new project and while looking through some old photo albulms with photos of Emily, as well as rubbing her soft fur, thought of an idea for an art quilt. I liked this photo because of the great shape of Emily, it will be challenging and interesting and I think I can pull it off. These are some of the materials I picked out, although now I'm thinking I need more colors. So I will keep drawing, planning, cutting, sewing and stuffing and with Emily's help, will be a fun art quilt and a simple joy.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. ~ Aristotle
