The Little Art Quilter That Could . . .


"I think I can, I think I can . . ."

You might remember that I wrote about a fantastic challenge offered by Lisa Chipetine, the new president of Studio Art Quilt Associates: Members of SAQA were invited to choose an artistic goal and spend one year, under Lisa's mentorship, working to achieve that goal (click here to revisit my original post). My own vision was to obtain a commission for a major piece of work through my web site.

Would you believe that it's already happened?! And I received the first phone call (I swear that I am not making this up) three days after I posted my vision on the SAQA Wiki site!

I will be designing and creating four wall quilts for a nursing home here in the Capital Region of New York. The facility, billed as "revolutionary," consists of a campus of sixteen "green houses," each of which will be home to a dozen residents. The quilts will hang over the fireplaces in the living rooms of the four Shaker-style homes.

I hope you'll stay tuned for future posts -- I'm excited to share my progress with such a wonderful support group as you, dear readers.

So, much like the premise set forth in the book, "The Secret," I sent my vision out into the universe, and the Law of Attraction brought me this tremendous opportunity.

Lisa Chipetine, you are truly a woman of vision!

Wow! I have goosebumps! The commission is a wonderful opportunity.

Lisa is an original...pretty hard to say no to...and with good reason.

Good going, Diane...

Fabulous news! what better validation for an artist than to have her work sought after.
There will be many more commissions in your future I am quite positive.
Your works are superb.

Wowser, that's amazing! That kind of thing has happened to me a couple of times... once made a sketch of the type of house we were looking for, then found it a couple of weeks later, pond included. Be careful what you write down, it may come true! : )
