Art in the home.
I was very pleased to be asked by Susan Bowers of 'Trace Marks' if a particular piece of my work was available to purchase. On her blog you can see her spacious studio and be even more envious when you see the works of art she has collected to make a calm background for her own creativity.
My small textile piece 'Snow Writing' is in 'grand' company far away in Queensland.
I have a textile piece by Dionne Swift, a print by Cathy Cullis, and one by Pat Hodson on the wall in front of me as I type. It is really special to have an original piece of an artists' work, it makes a sort of connection with someone who may be working many miles away or with someone whom one will never meet but already feel an affinity with and it is definitely a spur to ones' own creativity. We should all do more of the kind of collecting which Susan does.
