Catherine Whall Smith . . . is a Completer!

I am  a completer . . . no matter how long it takes! Artists refer to unfinished work as “Works in Progress” (WIP’s). My “Barriers” and “Ruth Snow Bowen” quilts are still “WIP’s” I ask myself “Why?”.  Since starting these pieces I have completed many, many other pieces of Fiber Art. Some large, some mid-size, and some small – so what is it about those “WIP’s” pieces that keeps them that way?  . . . Maybe they need a deadline? . . . Maybe due to their size I need more fabric?  . . . Maybe I just don’t feel like doing the work, as I know to finish these pieces it will take a lot of WORK.  Hmmm so art is work!

But there is hope – right now on one of my studio wall panels – there are new ideas ready to complete.  Hand-Dyes by Susan K. Ober; a bird print sent to me by fellow Fiber Artist Christina Blais; some of my photo images and a Figure Study in black/white/blue transferred to fabric.

So what do you do to complete a “WIP”? And what will you take the time to complete this week?

    But sometimes it takes a study/a look, even a long look in order to confirm the next step, the next direction, the finishing touch, etc

    So nice to see your work and get your blog.
