In the beginning...
Well, it's my blog and I can post what I want to! This is one of two paintings that I did when I was 5 . My cousin saved them for years and gave them to me recently. I remember how I loved putting colours together and seeing how they looked alongside each other. At some stage I started concentrating on pencils and forgot about my love of colour until I took up quilting, 6 years ago. Now I play with my fabrics! I don't organise them into colours but keep them random and sometimes throw them on the floor and see what happy accidents occur. I'm 6 years old again! It makes me sad when other quilters say they are afraid of colour. There is nothing scary about colour. Maybe it's the fear of others judging their choices?
BTW, the dog is a poodle with a bobbly tail and the cat is a Siamese, hence the blue ears! No blog is complete without a photo of a cat, that's why I choose the photo of me with Willow - she's my cousin's.
