Hello Ohio…

So it took me a while to process this, but I got into Quilt National. In fact, I read the email at school and thought, wait a minute, what? Because I had just looked at all the upcoming deadlines and notifications, and figured it would be a while before I would know anything. And this is the coolest part…it’s a quilt with multiple female organs in it. You know, boobs! And uteri! It’s not a pretty, easy quilt. So I did a tiny happy dance in the halls at school, and then flipped the bird with both hands at AQS. Well not really, because there were kids in the hall. But mentally.

Now I just need to figure out how to get to the opening. Minor issue.

It’s cool though. I’m really happy. It’s one thing to get in once with a quilt that has no nudity in it (I know, you didn’t even know I had those…), but to get in a second time with two angry Earth Mothers? I’m good.

Meanwhile, this quilt is going to the photographer tomorrow and I’m still sewing bindings…

With all the animals around. Actually, I finished the bindings and I’m on the sleeves…

But I hit some exhaustion line again last night (must listen to body)…

Although looking around me, I’m the only one NOT asleep. So yeah.

More murals…there are two here. The one on the right is by Cinzah. It’s about “the impact of the global shark finning trade on shark populations. An estimated 1000,000,000 sharks are killed for their fins every year. Over the past 15 years, shark populations have decreased by 60-90%.” So extinction?

Plus his sharks are adorable.

I think so.

Especially these two.

And this guy…

The other part of the mural is by n30n3, an artist from Mexico focusing on the importance of ocean exploration and discovery…

It’s a really long wall…

And the light was difficult…

So that’s two today because I missed one today.

Now I’m going to go teach about elements and keep doing a little art dance.
