A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a deadline.
I am paraphrasing this quote from Harvey MacKay. I am a mixed media artist that loves painting and collages. Recycling as much as possible including tea bags, onion skins (anything is fair game) working intuitively preferring sticks, fingers, feathers over a paint brush. I am grateful for the opportunity to create in my studio daily.

This is a small (8.5x11") art quilt that I made years ago when I participated in the Art Quilt Journal Project. This has dyed fabric, yarns, wire and ric rac in the background. The doll has movable plastic arms and legs, a pleated mesh wire skirt and a photograph of me. The shirt is made from melting Tyvek and paints from what I can recall. This is an example of creative play! Trying different materials, techniques and just having fun.
Here is a close up of the melted painted Tyvek. It has great texture to it.
