Shelling Corn and Painting with The Art Sherpa

The men have been shelling corn.

Kirby, Stacy, and Ashton came for a sleep over.

This started out to be a fun happy project with TheArtSherpa.

... but soon the boys were ready to do something different.

Maybe boxcars would be more fun.

I coaxed them to finish their art projects...

... and I'm right proud of them.

Refuge


"Refuge"
27"X21"
$450
Materials: commercial cottons, Superior Thread, and other thread. Mounted on black mat board, ready for framing, optional.

Technique: fused raw edge patches and then heavily quilted

Statement: One of the objectives of the Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge is to provide habitat for migratory waterfowl and other birds. These egrets stand as if queen of the surrounding lowlands.

When Mr. Tom Cowsert came to the Noxubee County Refuge last fall as a resident artist he ask me to depict one of his paintings as a wall quilt.

He painted a turtle, frog, catfish, and alligator under the water.

I chose warmer colors for my fiber art and took the liberty to add color to the lilies. I also hid a turtle, frog, catfish, an alligator in my scene.

As we boarded the bus for our “Vera’s Journey” tour, I snapped a few photos of my cousins and families.


And now I can’t even remember some of my 1st cousin’s names. I’m not sure if this is Helen or Grace; but I do know she is U. James and A. Doris’ daughter.
