I'm so happy to be home. I've been away for over a week and I'm itching to sew and play in the studio. I was out in Colorado all last week and then spent the weekend in Milwaukee. My hubby and I spent the good part of the weekend exploring the art museum. The building is amazing with its iconic wings.
I love a museum, especially one with modern exhibits and folk art. It was so inspirational. I was particularly inspired by one piece. It's funny, I didn't take a photo of it or remember the name of the artist but I couldn't get it out of my head. I do remember reading the description and it was about revealing a part of yourself, a sliver of who you are. So, I took that concept of revealing and made these. I don't have a plan in mind. I concentrated on figuring out how I was going to construct the piece. I'm working on getting an even smaller reveal...a sliver. It's fun to be inspired and think about where this might go and in what different incarnations. I want them to be much bigger too. Right now they're about 40" tall, but I want to go BIG and skinny and maybe curved rather than these angles.
