Saying yes to something new

Green Bowl, Deborah Boschert

Deborah Boschert is a quilt artist whose work I admire. She is also the producer of a series of web conversations on the topic of Visual Design, as part of SAQA Seminar 2018.

She has asked me to engage in a 20-minute video chat about the Principles of Design, and of course I said yes to her proposal, though not without some trepidation.

But saying yes to new experiences is part of what keeps us growing as artists, isn't it?

Ironically, much of the conversation will probably refer to my Cityscapes. Even though I haven't made one for a couple of years now, and have been dabbling with other series and other media, it seems they are still well-received, and still opening doors to new opportunities.

I will be sure to post here about the experience later this summer.

I am so thrilled that you're willing to share your work, process, ideas and inspiration with SAQA members! It's going to be great. Thank you!

Oh my, a treat coming from Deborah and SAQA in the fall. Please be sure to publicize it well so we don't miss it! Thanks so much.
