Pictures from Donna Bothen, Kim Rempel show: Mingled Pieces: a duet




Today was the reception for a show I had with quilter Donna Bothen. We called it Mingled Pieces: a duet (thanks Donna for coming up with that title!). I met Donna a few years back and loved her quilts and passion for her art. And we finally did a show together : ) The day we had to set-up we brought a bunch of pieces from our studios and laid them out on the floor and just believed we could somehow pull a coherent show from it. And it worked! We decided it was best to arrange the pieces around the room according to colour and as it happened, our pieces flowed together. So these are a few of the pairings we had on the walls.

Kim it looks fantastic! I love the way you paint your trees, maybe when it warms up this spring you can get out and do some landscapes. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, know what I mean? Cuz I'd love to see some more. :)

I miss 'talking' to you!
