It’s 26 weeks since I started my self-guided weekly art project. It’s the half way mark and I am still inspired! Today I share my latest textile sketch – Cockatoo Feather. What designs appeal most to you so far? I would love to know – leave a comment or vote in my mini-poll below. I also invite you to participate in my celebration giveaway of a copy of the catalogue for a matter of time.
Week 26: Cockatoo Feather
This has been a busy week as part of the exhibition team for the Sydney Quilt Show. Rain has foiled my daily walks but I found this feather from a sulphur crested cockatoo on a quick sprint to the post office between showers.
I have made improvisationally-pieced feathers for Feather Folly back in 2009. This time I distilled the design to capture the boxy shape of the feather and the yellow highlights:

View the Copa Abstractions collection from my weekly art project so far. Some of these studies will form the basis of larger works. I have some personal favourites but I am curious to know what designs appeal to you. (View the poll on my blog. You can see the results after you have lodged your vote.)
To celebrate the 26 week milestone, I am doing two things. First, I am rewarding myself with a week off. (Actually, I am going to be teaching at Grampians Texture in Halls Gap and I give myself permission to focus on teaching and enjoying a new environment.) Secondly, I have decided to host a giveaway. To be considered for a complimentary copy of the a matter of time catalogue, I invite you to leave a comment with your best self-care or time management tip for promoting creative productivity. I will close comments next at midnight Wednesday 22 March (my time in Australia) and let you know my selection on Thursday.
I look forward to seeing YOUR weekly art project. New participants are welcome to join in at any time. Be sure to link back to your specific blog/social media post so that we can learn more about your inspiration and process.
