Pumpkin Hill – November 18, 2009

“No one can really pull you up very high — you lose your grip on the rope. But on your own two feet you can climb mountains.”

– Louis Brandeis

I just got back from Washington last night. It was the BEST trip!!

I really loved my Don Tiller workshop! These photos are from the first day. We laid our blank canvases on the floor and Don drew a chalk line through them. Our plan was to make a connection series. We weren’t sitting next to the people next to us in the series, so not all of it worked as a connection, but every bit of it worked as a learning experience. Mine is 4th from the left. It’s a 9″ x 12″ panel, but it is teeny, between the larger ones.

The humble beginnings. This was just so much fun. I was so impressed with Don Tiller. He was a great teacher and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have studied with him. (Oh yeah…. I am his number one fan! **big grin**)

 

About Louis Brandeis

American judge Louis Brandeis was the first Jewish Supreme Court Justice, and one of the most influential Justices in the history of the Court. He was born in Kentucky in 1856 to Czech-born parents. He graduated from high school at age 14 and later became head of his class at Harvard Law School. As a Justice, many of his decisions created greater protections for individual rights of privacy and free speech. He died in 1941. Brandeis University was named in his honor.

For the FCC: I am not being paid by any of the people or products mentioned in this blog post. I just like them.

    Neat Idea! Your pumpkin hill section looks so inviting I want to walk into it. Thanks for the link to Don Tiller. I like his wavy buildings.
