Today is reveal day for an online challenge group that I joined, Fiberactions. The word to inspire us was "Departure".
As an old traveler around this world, "departure" has an immediate reference for me: aircraft. I had tried to get away from this and really challenge myself with some
thing entirely different. Text.
I drove to the major airport in my state and, hoping not to attract the attention of security, took photos. I was enthusiastic about trying some Photoshop application.
The problem was that I couldn't get the aircraft image out of my head when I thought about "departure". I decided not to fight it.
Coincidentally, my homework in drawing class was to make a line drawing with strong sunlight. The other students in my class are 1: really young and 2: don't get what I do (but then who does?). With this in mind I decided to draw an aircraft with strong sunlight using my Bernina: needle and thread.
And, guess what? My instructor LOVED my "drawing"....wants me to teach her how to do it :^)
