Today I’ll be preparing the contest. I will unveil it tomorrow.
My ESL student did not stay long yesterday. She comes with her 3 year old and he was fussy. It was just as well. I had lots to do before heading out to the group ESL tutoring I do.
Yesterday was a hooking day and a day to look at those library books and learn about abstract art. There is more to it than meets the eye. While I am still not overly fond of it, I can honestly say I understand it better now. It is about ideas, colour, form, and composition. It is not about objects or realistic representation. It is funny I am not overly fond of it, considering my Prairie Sky rugs are almost a quasi-abstract design. Still, they are based on recognizable landscapes still. True abstraction is not.
Today I am back at reading, sketching, and hooking. 🙂
