I did have some strange synchronicity over the weekend though... I was feeling very discouraged so I opened up my copy of "The Sound of Paper" at random, looking for inspiration and it opened at this page:
"In order to begin, we must start with where we are." Julia CameronThat's me told, after all my self-pity and jealousy last week.
Then, browsing around on the web, I came across:
"When you are on your path, and it is truly your path, doors will open for you where there were no doors for someone else." Joseph CampbellThanks Universe, I needed that!
I got this piece for the Quilting Arts reader challenge finished and emailed. I'm not a big quilter but I love the layering of quilting and I see ways to incorporate that and the textures into my mixed-media paintings. I had fun with this one and finally I'm quietly pleased with it. I went to the store to get more sewing machine needles and found some cool shell attachments that brought it all together. Talk about last minute though...
