Here I am three days after my encounter with Freddy Moran and I'm still smiling. I defy anyone to spend time in a room with her quilts and not come away with a more positive outlook. Yes, they are bold and bright but more important than that is the sense of freedom that her work conveys.
Just let go, have fun, try something new. That's what these quilts say to me anyway. I know it makes me think I need to be more adventurous in my color choices and maybe even less uptight about my construction.
Her collage works are all raw edge applique, makes me think I can do that too.
Art should be thought provoking, uplifting and inspiring and with that criteria in mind these quilts certainly qualify as art. What do you think? Too wild for you or just what the doctor ordered?
Until next time,
