the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. Henry Van Dyke
Words to ponder - particularly for artists. Who among us doesn't hesitate with their brush or their needle for fear of failure or a less than perfect result?
We are all guilty of this. Particularly me. I am forever hesitating - and worse yet, thinking too much about the result and not freeing myself up for the process.
I went to the Durham Orange Quilt Guild 2010 Show, "A Thread Runs Through It." Unbelievable, spectacular talent I witnessed today. I took hundreds of pictures and took pages of notes on style, technique and process. Brought back with me some wonderful ideas - tons of inspiration. I'll download the pictures this weekend - there are quite a few I want to share with you.
This little blue bird is one I did a while ago. I like him.
