Encore: Reflections of an Art Quilter
My piece is based on our "Reflections" theme as I reflect on my personal growth and achievements in the past 3 years. This is a melding of three of my grade school pictures from 1st through 3rd grade (ages 6-8). It was in those years that I felt encouraged to play, experiment and learn by beloved teachers...and now, so many decades later, I have similar feeling in my beginning years of art quilting.
I scanned my old photos into my computer and then manipulated the images in my Roxio Photo program. I used a monochromatic color scheme to better unite the images and blue was my favorite color as a child.
I look forward to our next phase of themes and feel as if I have "graduated" grade school and am prepared for the next level of learning, playing and creating!
