A Quilted Quince

😋 HI DEARS! I LOVE QUINCE SO MUCH, LIKE THIS WONDERFUL BIRD OF THIS LOVELY WORK.

Jill's Art Journal

High winds today where I live…

A good day to stay bundled up in a warm quilt!

These two words, quilt and quince were next to each other in my children’s dictionary. I thought they sounded like a good weird bird!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Idylle de Bohême

🖍️🖌️ HI SUGARS! A FEW COLORS AND SOME STROKES CAN BE ENOUGH TO ACHIEVE A VERY CHARMING SKETCH.

Désert Occidental

idylle de bohème

« À son cristal de roche, je glisse mon accroche cœur;
elle rougit de bonheur & garde son air rieur.
Elle se moque de moi, m’écarte, nous jouons batailleurs. »

☁️
🌬& les rimeurs s’escriment à l’ombre des railleurs.

🌑
« On dirait que la belle a appris à marcher
entre des éclats de corail & des cafés lattés,
dans des parfums de terre & de fleurs d’oranger. »
☁️
🌬& les racailles échouent qui tirent tout à la courte paille.

« Elle, elle tire les arcanes de soupçons d’avenir
& fait sur la comète le plan des jours d’ailleurs.
Son regard est mouvant & son ciel plein d’espoir. »
☁️
🌬& les pêcheurs d’escales désirent prendre son âme.

Women Powered Art in North Carolina by da-AL

🙆🏻‍♀️ HELLO DEARS! EACH ONE SHOWS HER ART.

Happiness Between Tails by da-AL

Great art, impressive art, and terrific art! That — though foremost the wonderfulness of spending time with our dear friend in North Carolina — defines the marvelous visit that my husband and I had. In this post, I explained how we had the good fortune to catch an exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art that featured work by the enormously influential American artist, Georgia O’Keeffe. (And here and then here I tell about another wing and more of the museum, plus here I tell about NC’s Chinese Lantern Festival.) In addition to her art, the show featured works inspired by O’Keeffe…

Bisa Butler

🌍 💁🏾‍♀️ 👌🏾 HELLO LOVELIES! I ADORE HER AFRICAN PERCEPTION OF COLOUR.

The Women's Studio

b. 1975

Brooklyn-based Bisa Butler is a fiber artist who is part of the African American quilting tradition. She makes intricate, kaleidoscopic quilts of life-size portraits of African Americans with vibrant, colorful, and richly patterned fabrics in an AfriCOBRA style.

Butler’s mother is from New Orleans, and her father was born in Ghana. She studied painting at Howard University and attended lectures by Black artists, one of whom was Lois Mailou Jones. At the university she was mentored by members of the African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists (AfriCOBRA), who defined a black aesthetic of portraiture which combined political texts and the use of strong colors – ‘Kool-Aid’ colors – rather than the traditional European palette.  

When she was a student studying for her Master’s Degree at Montclair State University in New Jersey, she took a fiber art class and in 2001 made a quilt for her ailing grandmother…

🤰 HELLO SISTERS! SKETCHING AND HANDWRITING ARE MORE MIGHTFUL WHEN THESE EXPRESSIONS APPEAR TOGETHER

I'm Worried My Therapist Hates Me: A neurotic millennial's musings and doodles on life, parenthood, and the myriad ways she can blame her mother for her troubles.

Before I got pregnant with my 1st child I had this beautiful idea of what it would be like: I was going to eat lots of organic, leafy greens, go on lots of hikes looking oh-so-adorable in my normal sweatshirts that were just a bit tight over my perfectly hard, ball-shaped belly, and I’d practice hours of prenatal yoga to ensure my baby received all those good, calming chemicals. The reality of my 3 pregnancies, as you might guess, looked very different. I HATED BEING PREGNANT! I took absolutely no pleasure in my ever-expanding body – my boobs, thighs and arms grew at almost double the rate of my belly. I didn’t want those leafy greens anywhere near me. Really, I could smell them from my bedroom upstairs through the fridge in the kitchen. Everything hurt, especially during my 3rd pregnancy when my pubic bone was split in two. Yup…
