Hello August

August is here and it means it is still hot in Las Vegas. 
Second, I always thought that if August had a color, that would have been the deep blue.

Moving On

Finished today

I started this blog about a year ago to share my art, quilting projects and inspirations. 
Today I went through and inventoried my posts and photographs, mercilessly deleted some and thought about changing the course of blogging a little.
I am going to do less quilting because it takes up so much time that I need for art projects.
I still have a couple unfinished sewing projects left for this year, I am going to work on them and share the progress but it will not be my priority.
So, I will still be sharing my art progress, Illustration Friday submissions, sketch books pages, art books, etc.
But mostly art, and less quilting.

Thank you to all my followers for your nice comments!

Illustration Friday: ROBOT

Overdosed with the pink on blue watercolor roses earlier this week (you can see them here)
I made this "Robot" illustration with an idea to put everything on black
background instead and to have NO flowers.
How they got into the picture again I don't know.

My sketchbook is telling me that I subconsciously go for cooler watery colors 
during the hottest months. 
I may start painting snow and snowflakes soon because it is not going to be any colder for long long time here!

From my sketchbook

I was going through my sketchbook and found some sketches I forgot I had.
Brings back memory about our vacation on Hawaii in May.
I wish I made more flower drawings back then!

Watercolor~pattern~moodboard

My watercolor doodling somehow transformed into patterns (thank you Photoshop!).
Then I went ahead and created a moodboard with some summer fashion inspired images.
The pattern on the bottom is my favorite, I really would loooove to have this on fabric.
