Afternoon with an Artist

I had my first artist play-date today!  A little over a week ago, while eating sushi with Erich and his mom, Colleen, we connected with the people sitting next to us at the bar.  Long story short, I connected with Catherine Newhart.

Today, we spend some time together.  I got to see her storage unit studio and its set up (very clever!), looked at some of the books she had on hand, and got some free supplies.  We had a late lunch and coffee later and ran errands.

The three books Catherine pulled out for me to look at were Creating with Paint, Creative Stamping with Mixed Media Techniques, and Creative Embellishments: For Paper, Jewelry, Fabric and More.  All three are by Sherrill Kahn.  I found the most inspiration from Creative Embellishments, however, all three had some fabric/fibers included.

It was a wonderful time and I’m looking forward to spending time with Catherine again!
