We Are Published!
S.I.X. has a double page spread in the latest New Zealand Quilter magazine which arrived in my mail box this morning. This is the 6" x 12" challenge Facets of a Rectangle where we exhibited at Taylor Jensen Gallery (you can see the photos in the August archives). I am pretty excited that 2 of my pieces were chosen to be published, and the biggest photo is the triptych of the fantails. I have to admit that I was quite concerned with my entries, because they were so very different than the others' works. I mean, look at the monarch triptych! and the bark selection! In the end, I guess you have to be true to yourself. It was an exhibition of 6 individuals' work and we all have different strengths, time to trial/experiment, and vastly different ideas. Sure, the others sold pieces and I didn't (I was a little sad about that), but then some of the world's greatest artists didn't have their work recognised until after they had died (please, I don't want that to happen!!).
