August's Art Challenge: Modern Art
Just a little a preview of what's ahead for the next couple of months on the Virtual Refrigerator... your hosts will be sharing artist studies and projects. During the month of August, I will feature some modern artists and our projects inspired by their work. Kennady and I have been poring over ideas for art projects - look for our Modern Art feature starting next week. We'll be featuring artists like Piet Mondrian and Gustav Klimt, and a few others!
For today... I've been participating in the July Blogging Challenge, and today our prompt is Made By Me, so I suppose I should show something artistic that I have done. I wouldn't say that I'm not creative, but my creative talents are not really in the area of the visual arts. In fact, when I was in school, art class wasn't nearly always my favorite because I rarely felt like my attempts turned out right. When it comes to drawing, painting, and pottery, my skills are extremely limited. I can sew and knit and do some creative things that way; and although I rarely take the time any more, I can do some crafty things. And honestly, I like to think that some of my baking has a bit of artistic appeal. So I dug through some archives of photos and found a few things Made By Me to share on the Fridge today.
|I made this decorative birdhouse many years ago.|
Kennady has used it as a subject for drawing too!
|I did this cross-stitched (on plastic canvas) nativity set when my|
oldest kid was just a baby.
|This is a framed cross-stitch sampler I made for my Mom.|
|I don't sew much any more, but I did make this|
Colonial era costume for Kennady a few years
ago. I made a Southern Belle costume for her too.
|This patchwork wall-hanging was put together while I was on a|
mission trip in Honduras. The kids in the VBS drew the squares,
and another lady and I sewed them all together. (The lady in the center)
It was a simple project but meant a lot.
