Art Despite It All

Another Italy quilt, this one is Isola Maggiore.  Isola Maggiore is the largest, and the only inhabited, island on Lake Trasimeno, in Umbria, IT.  This piece is definitely one of my very favorites of the series.  Another is finished, I'll post during the week.  And the last four are ready to be quilted.

And maybe this week I'll start on them.  Meanwhile, in the life intervenes department, I've moved house again.  This time into my art studio, which is now my home as well as my art hangout, all 350 square feet of it, and I brought BeeGee with me (read his blog for his take on the change).  I'm solo again and loving it, glad the weather is turning, looking forward to "hunkering down" as I say.  A simple, quiet, art filled life.

I can see why this is one of your favorites--I like it too, a lot!

I'm trying to imagine your studio taking on Beeg and your personal stuff--wow!

You continue to inspire me.

(((((SIGH))))) Connie, sweetie, I am worried about you and yet, I'm not. I know you are very resilient, but this is not an ideal situation. Sending hugs to you and Beeg.

I love the peaceful feel of this piece... and then I read Bee Gees blog from start to finish. My heart goes out to you both. Be happy.

Beautiful piece. I never thought of visiting Italy but after seeing your series it is definitely on my, if ever.

Ahh the relief of being your own person again. I think it is very exciting, creatively, to move into your studio. I look forward to seeing how your muse is challenged.

All the best for this big new step on the journey.
