A painted response

      Besides being a quilter, I paint regularly. I think watercolor suits me. Painting is is a totally different process than quilting. Often, you don't know where it is going. After a good value sketch, it is always interesting to see how the paint flows. I am going to show two fabric related. The first is my granddaughter who works at my treadle doing crafts. I tried to contrast the old vintage machine and parlor cabinet with a young, vibrant child. The second is a laundry display of vintage linens. I tried to show the delicate fabric against the green growth and flowers. I paint landscapes, people, flowers. These are half sheet Arches paper with Winsor Newton watercolors.
