Artist Talk for the Oakville Art Society
Last Sunday June 20th I was invited to present an Artist Talk for the Oakville Art Society.
As President of the Oakville Handweavers and Spinners Guild, I felt that a reciprocal way to say thank you to the OAS for lending their facilities for our Guild to meet, was to share some of my time to present an Artist Talk on a Design Process.
The date was rather hectic because not only it was Father's Day, it was scheduled at 2:00 pm, and we had the Soccer World Cup going on! Regardless the disadvantages of the events, the talk was very interesting for the participants.
The process itself is a methodology I have been applying for many years in the development of my own artworks (batiks, tapestries and Designs)
Nature as an inspiration for developing ideas is a very creative, easy and fantastic way to start a project. We are surrounded by common lines, shadows, shapes that can detonate our minds to create! Enjoy all the world that surrounds us!!!!
