thanks you guys!
i'd never actually thought of making smaller ones, but that's a really awesome idea...sounds way more manageable than making multiple larger ones.  i was definitely burned out by the time i had finished all those drawings, but i might actually start working on one again because it's been awhile and it was a lot of fun to make. so thank you for that inspiration!

i love it! and you took beautiful photos too.

i think you could easily integrate what you're doing into whatever you major in--even if it's technically painting or printmaking or whatever, you could keep this unique style and incorporate different media.

your school might be different than mine, but i'm majoring in painting and printmaking and i've turned in more than one project where i worked with fabric and stitching instead of paint...and i've seen a few people add hand embroidery to prints/drawings on paper as well. 

but anyway...long story short, i think you should do what makes you happy, but i could easily picture walking into an art gallery and seeing a whole room full of different works like this.

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / painting on sunbrella/colored canvas?? on: February 27, 2009 05:55:31 PM
i've been painting with acrylics on unprimed black canvas lately and i've been looking to experiment with more colorful backgrounds. 

that sunbrella stuff looks interesting, because it's heavy weight, comes in a bunch of different colors, and wouldn't fade over time, but i'm wondering whether the waterproofing or whatever chemicals they put in it would prevent the paint from being totally permanent. has anyone had experience doing any kind of painting or other projects with sunbrella? 

or does anyone know a good source for sturdy, tightly woven canvas (like heavier than that kind of stretchy home-dec stuff) that comes in more colors than just black or white?

thanks so much for any suggestions!

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Soo... my sewing machine broke down on me today... and its new on: October 27, 2008 12:18:53 PM
the least expensive brother machines that they sell at like costco and stuff are made a lot differently than the machines they sell in actual sewing machine stores (like anything where they tell you all the prices online is gonna be significantly lower quality than the ones you have to go into the store and find out for yourself).   there is also a pretty big difference between the innovis 40 and the innovis 80...they are both pretty basic machines but the 80 is a bit heavier weight so it can take more sewing and some heavier fabrics without shaking around so much.  if you were going to upgrade to a better brother machine then i would go with an innovis 80 or the NX450Q, which is a jump in the price but is a WAY sturdier machine... my sister went through a pretty similar fiasco w/ sewing machines and ended up w/ the 450Q, and she is totally happy with it. 

i have a pfaff, and i love it...they can sew on anything and they last forever.

they should sell these at any sewing machine stores that carry brother machines
good luck!
