The painting began as a beautiful abstract landscape. Wanting to find something greater, the artist painted over the previous painting and a huge wave emerged, like a wall of water. This opened a new pathway through the sea. As a gentle light seeps in, ...

" Since English Paper Piecing (EPP) can make use of such small pieces, I appreciated the section on "Making the most of scraps. " Other tips I found useful were the pages dedicated to creating a travel tool kit, since having a dedicated set of tools to grab sounds much smarter than my current flurry of racing around the house, desperately trying to find needles, templates,... Although it seems like many people I know (myself included) utilize EPP for hexies, I feel like I know fewer people that use other shapes such as triangles, diamonds, half hexies, squares, rectangles, and more shown in this book. Seeing templates in these less common shapes along with projects made from them is inspiring and opened my eyes to some new possibilities with EPP Glorious Patchwork is arranged by color schemes, and although I usually think brights when I think... One of my favorites from this chapter, the Herringbone Baby Quilt, actually uses leftover pieces from one of the quilts earlier in the book, and I really love that "use it up" philosophy. Of course I was drawn to the brighter colors of the Circus palettes, but it was also fun to check out all the color schemes and the different patterns represented.
I was rambling through the upper galleries in Tate Modern long ago when I came across a wide corridor thronging with young and old dancing to a very lively sound track. One wall was covered floor-to-ceiling with constantly changing clips from films. In the run-up to his present exhibition at White Cube Bermondsey one art critic placed him among the top 5 living artists in the world. Another said that The Clock (2010 ) is the greatest art work produced this century. (more of that later) Surround Sounds (2015) is different again: a large scale video installation projected across 4 walls. is no longer static on a page but bursts into life in a number of colourful explosions, while 'Whoosh' and Zoooom' travel at high speed around the walls'. Throughout the exhibition Marclay works with London Sinfonietto on a programme of weekend performances including new compositions and live improvisation sessions.
Even though we didn't move, we wanted to freshen up the place. I made a living room styleboard for us a while back for inspiration. This shows how one I made fit into our living room design.
