This Painting was included in the Juried Ohio Arts Council Online Visual Arts Registry exhibition held at the Columbus Metropolitan Library in Downtown Columbus. And I am very proud that the library felt they couldn't let it go and bought it! I am so thrilled! I have always wanted my work to be in a very public place, and this is it! Thanks Columbus Public Library!

This subject is keeping me from my studio, but I had to post, Columbus the art capital of the world, title is great, I want to also point out that this is a beginning, a catalyst , from this "Movement" there can be innovative and cutting edge philosophies, and art created, changes that can be made with a beginning like this. What is so great about "Indie" is that it is so very true, you have to do it your self here, We don't have to contemplate if some other city in more "Indie" than us, we just need to take action. What are other ideas for action that could be implemented? Is it possible to create a unified vision that spans small and large arts organizations, I think so, and I also believe it has to start with the smaller and more experimental groups and movements.
nothin' to it but to do it!
Make it in columbus!
I have proposed a public art day as my part in the movement. I will keep you posted!
Here is a section of my email to other organizers:Hi, I am wanting to put in your ear again of the idea a day of Public art. I am thinking artists writers, etc. create a few pieces each and mount them (legally of coarse) on a chosen day, perhaps gallery hop? Documentation can occur as posts to columbus indie capital website. This could be once or twice a year,
> cost would be minimal, I would think a distribution of fliers, and blog/e-vites. I like this idea because it is all inclusive easy to participate and can be on many different levels, performance, "installation" posters, drawings, objects left here and there.

My work space at Fran Skiles Painting on Fabric Workshop held at the Columbus Ohio Quilt Surface Design Symposium. See the little Sunbonnet Sue pile!
My work at the end of day two, it's all about texture and layers, and of course, Sunbonnet Sue!
Fran Skiles checking out her students work. We were all amazed at the amount of work we got done in two days.
The end of our workshop, what a great experience! Thanks, Fran!! Thanks Quilt Surface Design Symposium!

This is a detail of my daughter's great grandmothers quilt on her dad's side. I am into the different whites used, she was very prolific, and I will eventually add more pic's of her quilts. They are mostly in Indiana, and will take some tracking down. She had 11 children, and some crazy amount of great-grandchildren most of them have several quilts each! She also fed her family from a gigantic garden and kept chickens and pigs which are the source of many funny tales.

Here I'm working in the studio, on my latest quilt, I am interested in the Sue Bonnet Sue quilt pattern. I am fascinated be the faceless figure and I have been experimenting with her. I printed some fabric, actually cut up old house dresses, with a bird etching, and created a stack of Sue's in a pile. This piece is almost done.

An old quilt I got on ebay, see where the quilt became filler for a new quilt note holes from the ties. This quilt is as old as the hills, well used with lots of odd repairs, gorgeous. To beautiful to use and totally disintegrated, But what the inspiration piece.
