I believe that art enriches and informs our lives everyday in many positive ways. Sharing those experiences, whether as an artist or as an appreciator, is part of the pleasure. I welcome your comments and hope you find something of value: a laugh, an insight, a new idea or just a happy moment. Enjoy art!

Second Verse Same as the First
Given the opportunity to "collaborate" I usually jump so my hat was in the ring when the quilters called and asked me to work with a fiber artist from a theme of our choice. Andrea Luliak and I decided, after a little mulling, to bounce off the Rhapsody in Blue piece composed by George Gershwin in 1924. (Little did I suspect that Miss A was a former music major in college. She definitely had the advantage.) Anyway, we jointly decided to each produce a piece that had three segments, joined vertically, and inspired by the music.
This is the top of mine, you can tell that without a musical bone in my body I went full on for the historical aspect of the piece. Meanwhile, seeing Andrea's for the first time yesterday I actually hear the music...and not a blue piece of fabric in it! That's art for you.
