Finding inspiration

19" x 19"

What is it about something that makes it inspiring to me? I often wonder about what inspires fiber artists. I've always contended that a big part of it is texture...we all like to touch fabrics. It is a very tactile relationship. And, then there's color! Where do you start in it's exploration?!

I'm an autumn person, in my own coloring and in
my personal pallet. I'm happy with this piece: both the color and the texture.

  1. I love this one, too, Diane -- and I usually like bright, crayon colors. This one speaks to me!
