Today I really, really wanted to crawl back into bed! But, I've given myself each Wednesday to explore the wonderment in Asheville! So I got myself in gear and went. And I am so glad I did!
First, I went to Earth Guild in Downtown Asheville. What a phenomenal resource for all things fiber. I am working on a series of smaller vessels for American Craft Week in the beginning of October. I am using a range of fall colors taken from some of the changing leaves from our maple tree, and Earth Guild has a wide assortment of perfectly dyed wool. Here's the leaf I used on the sewn fiber.
Then! I went to the River Arts District to meet Diane English at the Great Cosmic Happy -Ass Card Company. An artist who uses vibrant colors and design. Her painting certainly come from her heart, and watched her work on a heart painting. Diane paints because it is her call. I so know that feeling, coming from deep within.
So, who knows where next Wednesday will lead me. I do know it will be filled with Wonderment!
