I'm admittedly (sometimes-overly) fond of alliteration and assonance, and life has just inspired a stream of both. Have been kicking myself for being digitally undisciplined (see? d-d?) -- ie., had NO idea I'd saved this photo of a young Picasso with a patchwork background -- while also aiming to cut myself some slack. So this will have to do for my Thursday promote-your-endeavors post on the much-appreciated Women in Guadalajara page, as well as a true 'throwback Thursday' image.
Thanks again to Louis Cotto, and guanatozfm!
I recently took a week-long series of workshops with Jessica Serran, whose work I truly admire, and -- as she promised -- taking just a few marketing/networking actions CONSCIOUSLY, and fearlessly, and lovingly, (all that sounds easier than it is), did indeed shake things up around my art. The panel I did for Irish St. Brigid's Day is in a museum in Dublin, and in a cool video.
I have a radio interview at 3pm Guad (Central US) time on Valentine's Day, where I'll talk about quilts' historical/social significance, etc. (live broadcast at www.guanatozfm.net), and I'm starting to work on scheduling Open Studios so that the map quilts, in particular (see the Engl/Irel/Scotland and Pacific Rim tabs here on the site), find their way into relevant homes or offices or consulates or restaurants...
Adapting to making and selling quilts, traditional and contemporary, in the midst of a pandemic -- more certain than ever that handmade quilts are healing.
