Now I know why.

Now I know why great artist of the past had appendices. Especially if they were as messy as I am while creating. No orderly dissaray here, simply put , it was just a mess.

An apprentice is cheap labor. For a while I had studio help. That help came in the form of a grandson who I paid a dollar a drawer to refold and straighten after I made a mess. Boy could I use him today, but alas he is with his mother in MO.

Had another good studio day. No errands out of the house. Kept the music going all day playing a variety of stuff from Marie Callas to Luther who needs no last name. When I am really engrossed with my work, I am the best dieter in the world. I hate to stop to eat. I should have about 6:30 but just made another cup of coffee. Next to Starbucks, my one cup coffee maker is a Good Thing. No more warmed over stuff.

Now it is after midnight and my stomach is saying feed me PLEASE!!!!

So after I post this and some photo images I will give the tummy some yogart and frozen peaches to make it happy til morning.

Hi Juanita!!!!!!!! What fantastic entries you have here! I can't wait to see the commissioned piece completed!

When is the opening date for your solo show? I'd like to put it on my calendar.

I'm so glad you have a blog. Now I'll be able to glimpse into the mind of a great art quilter.

I can't wait to see you in March - Quilting by the Sea Retreat.

Hello Juanita, I'm another that found their way here through Karoda's suggestion. I have no visual art skills, but I'm an avid "enjoyer" of the skill of others ;) What I've seen here of your work is incredibly vibrant and evokes such appreciation for the art involved. LOVE the seasons quilts.. simply beautiful.
