I've taken some time, temporarily, off quilting and am once again working in watercolors. Painting is something I've done since I was a kid. I've tried many mediums but the one I like most is watercolor. It's relatively safe & doesn't take too many supplies. The one thing I'd forgotten is just how expensive the supplies are, nearly $20 for a sheet of good watercolor paper (22x30 inches, Arches brand, 300 lb paper)and Winsor Newton paints at between $8 & $15 per little tube. At least it goes a long way. Nothing's finished yet, but as soon as I complete a painting I'll display it here. As far as topics, I paint anything except portraits. They always look like someone, but exactly who? I just can't seem to get a true likeness of anyone. Oh well, there's plenty else to paint.
As far as the quilting, I'm experiencing a bit of burn out I think. I just need a break. Over the past 10 years I've made so many quilts that they've piled up around the house. I plan on only doing about 4 to 6 quilts per year and making them very, very good ones. We'll see how that goes.
More later . . .
