Red Window in the Athens Sun Workshop Participant Showcase #4

I'm so thrilled with all the beautiful fabric art that was created by the participants in my recently completed 'Red Window in the Athens Sun' workshop. I will be showcasing their work over the next few weeks in a series of posts. So check back often and don't forget to comment.

I think you will agree that the diversity of style and expression are amazing.

Interview with Georgia

1. Did this project challenge you? Yes.

2. Did you enjoy the process? I did.

3. Did you learn something new/different and stretch your boundaries? Absolutely.

4. What was the easiest/hardest concept or technique to accomplish?
Easiest was fabric selection process. Hardest was the many tiny bits of fabric (what a mess I created!) and the layering – as I will quilt my piece, I had to keep my layering to a minimum (3 layers max.) 

5. Were you surprised that you accomplished such a complicated piece without a pattern or template? Yes – I generally create templates from my photos to work from.

6. Did you Develop/improve your Artist Eye? Absolutely. I still need to develop my ability to capture light and shadow in my work.

7. How do you feel about your personal accomplishment? Do you like your artwork? 👍 I do! 

8. Were you surprised by your own creativity, innovative decisions, and how? I always like to include creatures in my pieces and had to think and search for the right ones to use. I was so grateful to have Lynda’s detailed instructions and illustrations to follow!

9. Did this project increase/decrease your creative confidence? How. Yes, it did. I didn’t create the painterly effect intended – but I am happy to learn a new process which I have already incorporated into other works.
