Got back from Maine and found this terrific post by the wonderful Karen Kahle of Primitive Spirit Rugs, on her approach to color. I thought it was wonderfully thought-provoking and hope you enjoy reading it as I did.
Reminds me of a workshop I took with her years ago. She is an excellent and well-prepared teacher. The workshop was based on kits she had made, and this was my finished product (below, a very yellow-y picture). Interestingly, I didn't think I'd like it while I was working on it, but in the end I've really enjoyed using it and looking at it over the past several years. I often find this is true...while in the "making" stage I'm not enamored, but when it's done, I suddenly love it. Whether I'm drawing or knitting or beading or rug hooking...is this true for you also?
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
My next Beginning Zentangle® class will be for a private group in October. That class is full.
I'll be teaching another beginning class at the Greenfield Community Center in the spring of 2019, date to be determined. They do not have a website so please call them for more information.
I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.)
Come and amaze yourself!
