1. What kind of challenges did this theme present to you? The theme seemed more complex than previous challenges, and I wasn't certain that I was on the right track. Also, it was a challenge to have confidence in my inner vision of what the finished piece would look like, which I could see but others could not.
4. Do you ever work in a series? If so, what benefits or challenges does this present to you as an artist? I have worked in after-the-fact series: with tortoise, hexagons, people, quirky landscapes, etc. But I haven't really planned ahead to work in a series. Still, it is interesting to compare the quilts and think about whether I should do more of them.
