Subway Wall Mosaics

Here are two mosaics from the wall of the New York City subway stop at the American Museum of Natural History. I always wonder why the artist put a red question mark in the design. Do you put any distinguishing mark in your art that only you know the relevance of? That leaves the viewer guessing?

Our Colleagues on Fiberactions

Anyone interested in following the other quilt challenge that started in November, here's their blog site, http://fiberactions.blogspot.com/.

13 Fiber Artists from all over the globe who have come together to explore the challenge of creating quilts based on a theme. Every two months we each create a new quilt measuring 16"x20" based on a theme chosen by one of us. (Ed. note: Their first theme is initiative.

I like their idea of having a blog roll for "Friends of ...", and plan to start one for us, as well. If any of the contributors would like links to related organizations, challenges or other related groups (rather than individuals, I think) please leave a comment with the url and I will add it to the list!

Inspiring Walls

Here are just a few photos I've taken of different kinds of walls. Looking through my digital stack took me through lots of different thoughts and ideas. I'm getting started today!

THEME #1: Walls

I thought a lot about the first theme and for me it's really like to have a wall to break down and go for this exciting challenge.

here my decision is:


noun, plural

defined as:
- High thick masonry structures forming long ramparts or enclosures for defense
- Masonry fences around gardens parks or estates
- Structures that serves to hold back pressure
- Sides of a room or building connecting floor and ceiling or foundation and roof
The direction of the work will be horizontal: 20" wide and 16" tall

Let me know what you think and be sure to stop back on 1 february 2010 to see everyone's interpretation.
