My Life As an Apron Artist

What will appear on this apron?

This week I am teaching at Quilting By The Lake sponsored by The Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center.  The event is held at Onondagh Community College in Syracuse, NY.

One of the fun events is a fundraiser where artist's aprons with the QBL logo are "enhanced" by the workshop instructors and auctioned off.  The proceeds are used to provide scholarships for the summer program. The above picture was from a couple of years ago and I have removed the art that had been stitched for that year's auction.  (Thanks photoshop!)  This year's apron is much more complex and on a fun theme from south of the boarder.  Whoever acquires this baby will be the hostess with the mostest at least one day a year when they put on The apron and have some fun.  OK....if any of you heavy hitters are reading please fluff up your check books and come prepared to bid!

Last evening I presented a talk to the entire group of workshop attendees.  The talk was. "Self-Critique".  It was a pleasure sharing some of the thoughts about how artists evaluate their work.  

I'll see you next week with some images from this great event.
