Teaching in Texas

Last week I had a fabulous time down in Texas
The Houston Area Fiber Artists are, without doubt, a wonderfully talented group of artists!

When is the last time you walked  a classroom and saw people staring at the wall, the floor...
a tree or even a crack in the sidewalk!

Happens all the time when your eyes are open and in search of texture.
Inspiration can be found in the simplest places.

Remember the contour drawing exercise I talked about here?
Even those who are super uncomfortable with drawing can love this exercise.

And yes - we did spend a fair amount of time playing with fabric.
