Cuban José Martí: “The more artistic a craft, the richer the craftsperson.”
Squirrel in your REAR VIEW MIRROR
Seems like my whole weekend has been sitting around knitting, except the it's been a stunner of a few days, cool, breezy, and simply fabulous so my sitting has been outside. I have also 'discovered' Midsomer Murders on the Roku and it comes in just fine on the outside tv. Amazing what bad teeth the English had, but each 1 1/2 hour show keeps my attention for other things too. Love a new series- should take me a few days to get through this! Meanwhile the sweater is coming along and I am almost ready to bind off and start the armhole and neck pick ups. It matches up nicely with a tee shirt that fits so I am hopeful it won't be a waste of my time... again.
I found out that a show I planned on entering doesn't work for the two quilts I hd in mind- neither fits the parameters, dammit. I don't think I have anything else that will work the theme either, but will go over it all with a fine tooth comb tomorrow to make sure. There may be something in the 'old and forgotten' log o' quilts, maybe something moldering around in a box somewhere. There didn't seem to be an age limit so maybe.
Speaking of age limits, here's something from 1919 (!),continuing my current season of artists.
I'm not generally a fan of palette knife paintings but these blew me out of the water- hope you appreciate his deft hand too!
I really want to touch these oil paintings. But I won’t. This is the stunning work of Swiss artist Conrad Jon Godly. Perhaps it’s the Canadian in me, but majestic snowy mountains will always have a special place in my heart, and I absolutely love the way he’s captured them in paint… thick, dripping paint. Gorgeous.
