Red Window in the Athens Sun Workshop Participant Showcase # 6

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 Lisa

1. Did this project challenge you? yes

2. Did you enjoy the process? After I got started I did. I was scared of it at first.

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

4. What was the easiest/hardest concept or technique to accomplish? Working with color placement seemed easy enough, hardest – still working on that, final layer placement and shading using all the small pieces.

5. Were you surprised that you accomplished such a complicated piece without a pattern or template? Yes

6. Did you Develop/improve your Artist Eye? I think so.

7. How do you feel about your personal accomplishment? Do you like your artwork? I am surprised that it does look like the picture so am pleased with that. I think when I finish the final layer that I will like it.

8. Were you surprised by your own creativity, innovative decisions, and how? Yes. It was a learning curve to get used to looking for what each small piece of fabric could represent. But, in the end, the pieces seem to work.

9. Did this project increase/decrease your creative confidence? How - Increased. I am more comfortable with color matching; believing what color I’m seeing and picking the right color combinations.

Thanks, Lynda, for all the handouts and instructions.
