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.
