This is week 4 in my class Working in A Series 1 with Lisa Call. There are 6 weeks left in the class. It is going by really fast! The work has been intense, at least for me, as I approach the assignments each week.
There is a different dynamic when I am just creating as opposed to completing an assignment for a class. I think I feel like there is a lot more pressure. What if I choke on the assignment and hit a snag? Well I kind of / almost did this week. More on that in a bit.
This weeks assignment was about proportion, scale, and Figure and Ground.
In my class "Working in a Series" our focus last week was color. That seems like a pretty easy subject, especially for someone who LOVES color!
Well it is a pretty big box of crayons when you think about it. Which one do you choose? We had many different suggestions for our focus with color. We could select one of the class assignments or write our own. I did a little bit of both. Because I have selected a smaller format to work in I was able to complete several pieces of work last week. The works that I created are right around 10" x 12".
I wanted to share some of my thoughts and reflections on Vineyards. I have several books that I have been referring to with beautiful photos. Oregon Wine Country is one of my favorites.
What has captured my imagination with fiber and Vineyards is the linear qualities that you find when you look up on a hill at a vineyard. I am really a novice when it comes to wine making and the art that it entails, however, I have a great appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes into the lifestyle of the winemaker.
