Winter Solstice I

The Gang of Four (pending some other appellation) met in early November for the first time. We are all young artists, at about the same place in our careers. We are close to each other in age but our children range in age from 13 to 24, so our parenting responsibilities are not the same. I believe that our goal, for now, is to encourage each other to make more art. We plan to meet about once a month. We were inspired by the Twelve by Twelve gang and have adopted that format with the idea that we might make smaller format work that we could show together.
We decided to challenge each other to meet in December with a fiber response to the winter solstice. It was very exciting to see everyone’s work. In addition to making more work, another of my goals is to do a better job of using my digital camera. This was another scan with my new scanner.

I hope your gang of four proves as enriching as I am finding Twelve by Twelve. Look out for our chocolate-inspired pieces at the end of january.

I love this. It's so simple and so graphic, beautiful use of economy of stitches. I really like working on a square format- should try to do it more often. Good luck with your new group and Thanks for your comments too!
