The final piece of the year is complete.
This has been a year of slow and contemplative art making. I’ve been focused on building a business as a job satisfaction coach and, while I’ve spent some time most days of every week in my studio, production has slowed. My annual intention is to create 12 art pieces. This year, there are only 4. However, they are 4 pieces of art that please me tremendously. As I continue to create feelings out of fiber, my voice grows in definition and clarity. And that brings me joy.
(Feeling) Impulsive is an excellent way to close out this year’s art creation. Vibrant color placed with wild abandon aligns with impulse.
How could you be more impulsive in your life?
Constructive criticism and comments are always welcome. Please share your thoughts!

Next up: A short hiatus for the remainder of the year from creating feelings out of fiber. Time spent in my studio during this season will be focused on experiments like paint on fabric, fabric dyeing, and ways to hang my Feelings series as stand-alone pieces rather than attached to a painter’s canvas. I’ll post about whatever experiments I undertake. As soon as 2019 begins, I intend to dive right back into my Feelings. Enjoy the remainder of 2018. May peace and joy be with you.
Info about my Feelings series: I interpret my random abstract doodles as emotions. The guiding point is the outer boundary of the doodle. The boundary evokes the feeling. From there, I contemplate how to bring that particular feeling alive in fiber.
