Penny Sisto

I'm getting my old fiber studio cleaned out and ready to paint, this weekend. The things that are left to pack up just haven't gotten over to my new studio. One pile was video tapes. I don't have a video machine over there so I need to find a new home for the ones I want to keep. Some I will donate to the library although I'm not sure they have much of a need for them.

I did come across a tape I made from a PBS show on, Penny Sisto. I've been following her works since 2002. She is an amazing art quilt journalist. That's my own label for her. Lately, I've been wondering if a person can view static art like fiber art quilts and get an emotional response such as one you might get from watching dancing or listening to singing.

When I look at Penny's work I feel a reaction. I have an emotional response to her work. So, I guess I answered my own question. Perhaps if I had worded that more along the order of can I create something.................? That's still unanswered.

For those of you interested: Penny Sisto

Her galleries are full of wonderful art quilts. Enjoy!

P.S. I finally just clicked on the Simple Layout and had it applied to my blog. Once I did that I could click on Design and go to the Advanced (on the left hand side) and the fonts and colors, backgrounds and all that good stuff came up. I could make the adjustments and changes and have them applied to my blog. I just got tired of fighting Blogger. Now at least I have control back for my header and fonts, etc.
