La maison de nos chers amis de Jean-Noël et Martina (avec Ken, ci-dessous) à Roquebrun, France, surplombant la rivière Orb.
The home of our dear friends Jean-Noel and Martina (with Ken, below) in Roquebrun, France, overlooking the Orb River.
I joined a five-month Professional Art Practices group at The Drawing Studio in downtown Tucson. My goal is to develop a body of work in fabric art and watercolor, with the intention of selling it. And since we are moving to Roquebrun in two years, ultimately, my vision is to support myself as an artist IN FRANCE! How’s THAT for moxie!? Wheee!!!
Last month, I committed to the group – and more importantly, myself, to a 20-hour per-week studio practice. This month, I further committed to create, each month, 5 small paintings, 5 mini-quilts (fused) and 5 small quilts (fused). Since I am a true fledgling, and in all that delightful, tender fledgling-ness, need I say, this is BIG!

So, Au fil de l’Orb is my first installment!
More to come!
