Skein + Paint Week 46

Skein+Paint Nov 24

This is the last Skein+Paint post for 2014. Maegan and I will be back with new pairings in 2015. I will back shortly with some things I am loving right now. I need to give this blog a kick in the butt. Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate. :)

Skein + Paint is a collaboration between two friends who share a love of color, texture, and art. Their idea was simple: that the crossing and mixing of various art forms would inspire something more. By using each other’s work as inspiration, they would stretch within their own work, gain insight into how others view that work, and inspire themselves and others toward future work. Creating in their respective mediums, each week one of them will have provided an image as a prompt and the other will have interpreted that prompt. Dana will be bringing images to life by hand with pencils, paints, pens, etc. Maegan will be working with yarn coupled with photography. The image that was the prompt will be featured on the left and the image that was the interpreted response will be on the right.

I’m a couple of days late with this post. How are the days speeding by so fast and we are left with just a short amount of 2014 left? Amazing.

I hope you enjoy this pairing of riotous color. It makes me want to play. :) xoxo

I wasn’t sure what I was going to pair with this Skein+Paint prompt but then she came about as I was back to practicing lessons from Full Circle. I really loved working on her and love her moodiness too. I kept imagining that it was her knitting basket filled with lovely projects. Have a great day.

I look at this image and I think of pumpkin picking, hay rides, and the crunch of the leaves underfoot and all the beauty of the season. Happy Monday. :)
