I believe this quote to be very true, especially in my art. I find the more challenges I work through, the more I grow as an artist. This months journey is a perfect example. Quilting of Gee’s Bend was not overly inspiring for me so I dug deep this round and came up with some beads. Here is one set I am particularily thrilled about, that I never would have made, had it not been for this challenge. As I was digging deep, I noticed that inside one of the quilts was a pretty strip that caught my eye and inspired fauceted quilt beads. This Challenge most certainly reaped reward for me!!
Here are a few more beads I came up with in relation to this art journey
Since is my turn to provide the prize for this months art journey challenge and…..since I am talking about rewards today….I also have a carrot to dangle in front of your nose as a reward;) Here is the prize for this months challenge.
