Still in Texas.. pics for you
Hi Ya'll ! I'm still in Texas... my last day :) I have sooooo thoroughly enjoyed this camp! Pretty much chatted out... tired brain! But thought I would post some pictures for you... about a third that I have and will share with you. More eye candy so to speak! :) I truly believe that seeing other people's work not only inspires and motivates us.. but trains our eye, educates us, and helps move us in a more positive direction in our art! I believe that if we stop on things that are are great - and actually analyze WHY IT WORKS, and works so well... you LEARN! Similarily, if you look at ones that aren't neccesarily fantastic.. but just "ok"... and analyze WHY it's only ok... you learn what not to do, and maybe what could have been done better to make it a better piece! Don't you think so? Others motivate us with style, design, or color... and we recognize right away that THAT is what I like!!! What is it about that piece that you like?? Can you incorporate that particular concept into future pieces? How? LOL or if you're like me... can you REMEMBER that concept long enough to incorporate it into your next rug?? LOLOL Anyway, I hope some of these wonderful rugs INSPIRE you to pick up your hook today! These are some of the finished rugs that were in the rug show this week. Enjoy. Create. Grow! Blessings, Brenis :) ps... you can click on any of these photos to see larger more accurate representations!!
