Today, I’m blogging from a restaurant newly located inside the Hilton. It’s a Texas chain called Pappasito’s Cantina.
Yesterday started with an ephinany class. Yes. I had an AHHA moment thanks to Suzie Monday and her class Your Brain on Creativity. For years, I’ve wanted to make paper collages, but for some reason, I never gave my self the time or permission to do so. I’m really not interested in making fabric collage, but, who knows, that could change. What I really want is to use found paper, cut it up, and glue it down.
And that is exactly what I got to do in Suzie’s class.
“This exhibit is inspired by the 2011 exhibit, Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts exhibited in New York at the Armory. Quilters have long used ruby (red) to show love, power, lust, strength, fire, death, and war. The addition of white was often used as a relief to the strong red. A selection of ruby and white quilts made from 1974 to the present, and a selection of read and white antique quilts makes a powerful statement as we celebrate our 40th anniversary as the largest quilt show sale and quiltmaking academy in the United States. “
I remember reading about the Armory exhibit. It is incredible to see a re-enactment of that show in person.
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do.
Okay. Tomorrow I will tell you about today.
In the meantime, I feel a bit like Hunter S. Thompson in Las Vegas.
