Need a Boost?
Who doesn’t need a boost from time to time? My mood is impacted by the weather, the news, creating art and interacting with others. It’s been a tough week. I often don’t realize I’m feeling down until something comes along to elevate my mood.
This is the best time of year to walk in our neighborhood and catch the sunrise. No surprise I have built a collection of sunrise quilts. They always give me a boost. Apparently, others feel similarly, since Sunrise Over the Gulf River has been selected by U. S. Ambassador Eugene Young and his wife to be included in an exhibition at the embassy in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo. This is my second quilt to be selected by the Art in Embassies program. The last one went to Belgrade.
I can’t control whether my work is selected by an ambassador, but I can control whether I make progress each week. There is something about completing a large section of of a piece, like Bat Sh*t Crazy that is a real mood elevator. This week I completed a 36″ H x 18″ W section. I’m pleased with how my intent to create atmospheric perspective is working.
