Sometimes the sewing day can be a long one and I prop the laptop on the ironing board and play a little background entertainment. I have been watching a PBS series called Art 21. It profiles artists- their inspirations and methods of working. I was sewing the jacket shown here while listening to various painters and sculptors talk candidly about their work....and I found myself making different choices than I might otherwise have done. It freed me up! The jacket is made of pattern pieces cut first and then bleach-striped , so it already had some painterly qualities. I am inching toward my easel- closer every day.
