Kookaburra fever

The giant amongst the kingfisher family….

First a drawing, then another, and another…. add a bit of paint… and do another………. what if I add a bit of stitch……. that isn’t exactly thread sketching…… and so it goes.

Play Days in May

There is an ongoing Art EveryDay challenge happening on Textile Art Collective (Facebook) (closed group, but if you are into textiles, and want to join, just ask)  for which I have the privilege of, this year, setting the daily inspirational word. This isn’t always easy, but is a bit of fun nevertheless… and tends to be something I think I would like to interpret! however my pieces don’t always come up to scratch, and I have to admit that I also lag behind from time to time – well, life has a tendency to sometimes get in the way. I have also discovered that the medium I am most passionate about – textiles –  takes four times as long as I think it will….. so thus far, daily drawings/paintings I can manage, but I am only up to working on my third textile piece for the whole month!! ( Although, don’t get me wrong, I am still doing textile other things as well as this Play Day in May routine…. time spent lately on a QS quilt, to be a wedding gift! more on that later, once I can do the big reveal!  there might be a few teasers, somewhere on the blog…)

So here you see, Day 22, LAYERS  – progress shots…

It is still a work in progress; I think it needs beads….  See my page Play Every Day in May for more photos of this years challenge, and the daily words if you would like to try it out!  May 2013 days are there as well….
