Here is a photo of the painting I created last weekend! (Happy b-day to Jennifer!) A trip to the beach with her and her young'un in May inspired this image in my head. While I worked on painting the ocean--much harder than one might think, I might add--I spoke to Amb over the telephone about art and traveling and having the time you need. Painting a picture for one best friend while talking to the other... does it get any better than that? Well, maybe if they'd both been there with me in person....

I'm off tomorrow for three weeks to Europe, so I'm sorry to report I'll not be able to post for awhile. When I get back, however, I'm sure I'll have much to share!
Hi there, I'm Heather Matthews, and I welcome you to my art blog! I post something new every week, so please save this link as a bookmark and come by often. I'm always glad to get feedback or have someone just say "hi." See below if you need info on how to post a comment.
My goal is to sit myself down in my studio every day to create! I love mixed media, collage, fabric and textiles, quilts, bags, and cards. My dream: to become a full-time professional artist and instructor, with strong ties to the art community in Fort Collins, Colorado.
