2017 October Meeting

Ideas about our next project, "Weather", continue to develop in our heads and in our studios. In the meantime, some of us keep working on other projects, learning, experimenting or just playing.

We visited Lynn's studio and had a chance to see her works in progress on her design wall.  Here is a little peek of Lynn at play:

Betty shared a larger piece and smaller companion piece resulting from her recent class using concepts based on Matisse’s work.  

She shared with us the idea of noticing the negative spaces resulting from the design elements.

Hilde has completed a second edition of her village in postcard format, shared at our last meeting.
The second piece is her contribution to a fund raising event for a Puerto Rican hurricane relief effort.

Elaine shared a photo of a piece submitted to a challenge in which she layered canvas and stitched using various threads.
We had quite a discussion of the virtues of Elaine's new Janome 8900.
