Just got back from the Studio Art Quilt Associates/Surface Design conference in Philadelphia. These were blooming everywhere, along with daffodils, against the pale greys of the landscape.
Along with lectures, and a downtown Philadelphia gallery tour, I took a 3-day workshop. Here's one of many of my work in progress from the workshop.
work in progress from a Hollie Heller workshop. I expect to collage and stitch and more on all these works in progress.
another work in progress. wild colors! It's actually 2 pieces, on watercolor paper, so who knows where I'll go with this!
On the last day of my trip, I visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art for the Frida Kahlo exhibit and saw their fabulous collection of impressionists. I'd never been to this museum before. Wow! Very impressive!

I just learned this very easy technique and I love it. It's from L.K. Ludwig's book "Mixed Media Nature Journals." You'll be seeing more of this from me, combined with drawing. You just use water soluble crayons, dipped in water, and color the real leaf. Then you lay it face down on paper (or cloth) and rub. It gives you a gorgeous print! AND you can do it on the road, in your journal. Way cool.
