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.  🙂
