Weekly Art Project: Week 48

I am back home and catching up on my Weekly Art Project. My textile sketch for Week 48 is inspired by the tranquil zone of Cochrone Lagoon where the grasses go through a periodic cycle of lush green growth.

Join the Weekly Art Project!

  1. Join the Weekly Art ProjectMake a pledge to participate – you can do this privately but there is power in a public declaration.
  2. Define the parameters of YOUR own weekly project*. Write it down somewhere!
  3. Record your results.
  4. Share a photo via the link up that I will post on my blog each Wednesday. (The link up for each week will stay open for 14 days.)

* Your project can be in any medium and size.  If you would like to explore working in a 6x6in square format, download the Weekly Art Project Design Sheet to develop designs at this scale.


  1. Another wonderful abstraction. Do you have any advice on how to become more skillful in abstraction?

    • Hi Martha – thanks for stopping by! Practice is crucial for mastery and that is one of the benefits of a regular creative practice such as the weekly art project. I take photographs and isolate key lines, shapes and colours to generate rough designs. I use the Sketchclub app on my iPad but a simple sketchpad works well as does paper collage. My preferred construction method (machine piecing) is a further driver for simplification. It’s one thing to draw a design – it’s another to make it in fabric!

      • Thanks so much for this reply. That is a lovely idea, one that should have occurred to me as I’ve watched you develop these gorgeous abstractions. Not that I’ll ever achieve what you have, but this does give me a starting point. So thanks!
