Birds, Bugs and Beasts, an Inspirational Art Theme …Guest Blogger: Susan Sasnett

August 26, 2017

Level 4 Studies in Stitch and Multi – Media ( Turquoise) blog 6, the last in this series. This group of 5 students will be showing the entire exhibit plus additional art pieces, (more than on the blog) at the Pacific Northwest Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum in La Conner from October 11th to Dec. 30th.   You won’t want to miss it. Gail Harker

Susan Sasnett’s Blog – When I first discovered Gail’s classes I didn’t think there was any way that I could attend a 2 year long class much less be a diploma student but here I am at the brink of completing my Diploma Level.   I have learned so many techniques and principals of art and design over the years.  More importantly I have learned to be an artist: working with an inspirational theme, developing my artist eye and developing the discipline of going to my art space every day.  Since knitting through high school I always have something creative going on in my hands but after Gail’s classes I have the tools and understanding to follow my creative passion to deeper and even more satisfactory levels.  For the past four years my inspiration theme has been Birds, Bugs and Beasts.  For this class I focused primarily on bird caricatures.  I am particularly interested in animal shapes and how the division of space is created within that shape.  I see endless possibilities for how to fill those spaces and continued exploration of my theme.  Thank you Gail and Penny for being my guide by my side, I will be forever grateful.
