One of my ESL students was accepted into a more formal full-time learning situation. I am excited for her and wish her well. As a result I have two mornings open during the week. This is good. It gives me more time for rug hooking and my abstract rug hooking course, which is what I need right now. So I am shifting gears to work more on those.
I spent time yesterday spinning and finished the soy silk/alpaca singles. Hopefully I will ply them and process them soon, maybe today.
Other objectives for today?
- read some of Wild Fibers magazine back issues.
- sketching from my microscope book…some rough sketches for the abstract course.
- hooking Lost Soul.
In the process of searching for abstract artists I have come across some fabulous Christian abstract artists! Check out Jaison Cianelli, Mark Lawrence, and Ruth Palmer. Now I am growing interested in abstract art I am going to have to poke around a bit and see what, if any, books have been written on contemporary Christian abstract art.
Update: Remember the contest is open until Sunday midnight!
