I’ve mentioned before that my hubby got me a great gift last Christmas–the Color Inspirations Club from Pink Castle Fabrics. I get a packet of solid color fabric every month and I thought last month’s was the best…until I got this month’s!
When I opened the package, I immediately thought of a painting I have done that I have wanted to turn into a fabric painting.
This is the fabric
Maybe not an immediate connection for you, but it sure was for me! And then my gaze fell on the fabric I recently stamped, stenciled and painted…
Has my subconscious been working on this combination? Or is it just a lucky coincidence that all these items came together on my worktable at the same time?
Whatever project I eventually come up with will not be a direct copy of the painting. I’m not even tempted to try and do that. The painting is inspiring me and there will be very similar elements, I think, but it will be a different aspect of the topic…another in my ‘city’ series.
I have so many projects that I want to get to and I just don’t know when it will happen. I am very undisciplined in my use of studio time or even scheduling my free time to use for studio time. I obviously need to make that be a goal for the future! Is this like a New Year’s Resolution early? Maybe so, but I guess it really needs to happen if I want to accomplish anything!
