The last few nights I’ve been reading…..a lot. I started reading “It’s Not About the Bike” by Lance Armstrong. It’s one of those books that I find a hard time putting down. This is the book in which he shares his journey through triumph, tragedy, transformation, and transcendence. It is the story of a world-famous cyclist and his fight against cancer.
If you know anyone battling cancer this is a must read.
On the hooking side…
I know I opened the can of worms when I talked about all the things that Dulcy and I discussed when I was at her house earlier in the week. This idea is not earth shattering but it is one of my goals for the upcoming year. Maybe goal is not the right term….perhaps something I’d like to explore. I would like to emulate this style of painting that I love…..I am drawn to paintings with big chunky strokes and I’d like to find a technique to get a similar feel with my rug hooking.
Using wider strips?
Hooking in blocks of color?
Or perhaps it’s in the drawing of the design and the use of color?
Time will tell.
