Rich Color Study


Study in Over-dye

We had several different projects to work on. I learned some new discharge techniques as well as a study based on over dye.  The week went by so fast. Although I’m very tired, I wish I had one more day to play. It seems that just as the creative inspirations start to surface, it’s time to wrapped it up and come home.
This trip will be an especially sweet memory as  the Rich colors entered a special place within my heart. I learned more about myself, seeing my needs and my passions in a new light. Reaching a place that would’ve normally scared me to death, but actually going through the motions realizing that the special color was always there, I just needed to allow it to present itself.

Hot and tired.

About cherylolsonartquilts

I graduated with a major in Fine Arts degree from NSU in Aberdeen, but my passion for learning has been a continual process as I have taken classes in design, dye, fabric surface design and many ongoing classes over the past 10 years. I have been eclectic in my approach to my Fiber Art with the love of learning and trying out many variable techniques as you will see with my older pieces. This year you will see a shift, as I am finally beginning to have a vision of where my art will take me. I am very excited, for this new concept has not been used in the Fiber Art or Art Quilt world thus far. This new approach begins with my love of thickened dyes and batik layered dyes as the background piece and then adding the variances of scraps of color fused on top to create colorful and textural pieces of art.
