||OUR GROUP CHALLENGES
"Georgia O'keeffe" was Carol's challenge.
Carol took her inspairation from some of the watercolors that Georgia painted of the New Mexico landsscape. A lot of the wonderful texture is Carol's handspun wool. Picture in the upper left is inspiration.
So great to see tapestry a part of this talented group.
Ronnie has a clever take on the challenge. She said if Georgia ever saw this lovely scarf, she would NOT paint it. Well we say, 'Why not? Georgia'. It is perfectly lovely.
What a wonderful pattern. The chenille must make it a real joy to wear. So there Georgia!
Terry felt that the desert paintings appealed to him most with their soft colors.
Silk and bamboo were used here. Great fun to work with.
Claudia remembered an exhibit of Georgia's at the Brooklyn Museum that showed a lot of the artist's hand make clothes. Georgia would find a garment she liked and recreate it in different colors,
So this was the response for Claudia. Multiples with different colors. Claudia said the yarn was problematic as a warp as it broke easily. We say the result was a success!
Leila too, took her cue from the desert colors in Georgia's paintings.
The wonderful patterns here were woven in a real blend of materials. Leila would never use just one! All masterfully handled.
Leila kept right on going and used Georgia as inspiration for this wonderful scarf.
We would all love to know where and how she got all these wonderful yarns. So much fun. Thank you.
