First Fridays Art Walk

I went to First Fridays Art walk yesterday. The weather was perfect for walking the streets and checking out the galleries. I took a poor quality video of Henry st. Gallery where I was looking to see the art of Georgia Meyers. Her paintings are the group of portraits in the video. She is going to make a copy of one of the portraits for me. I didnt get to enjoy all of the galleries because I chose to wear shoes that were cute to look at but very uncomfortable to walk in. I can't wait to go next month in the most comfortable clothes and shoes I can find. The music is by Boat Burning. I appologize for the shaking and poor quality. Our kodak camera has a better quality video and I will be using that from now on. Going to the galleries really inspires me to get busy creating things.

3 year old art

I am lucky enough to have some drawings I did when I was about 3 years old. I estimate the age from dates on the forms I was drawing on. My plan is to make a quilt with them as I did
here. I have lots of fabric scraps but I would like to dye my own fabric. Maybe I'll do some of each. I have made sketches of the general layout and next will make color sketches to get my colors figured out. And then I guess I'll experiment with dying some fabric. I will post updates as I go along.
