This was my third time taking a class with Marina. She always has a great way of getting inspiration and extending it to make art. We were asked to bring in a piece of printed cloth or a print of a pattern that resonated to us. I had many, and with her help,picked out one piece that was going to be thrown out by a sewing contractor friend. We were asked to study the colors and pull out no more than 6 colors from it. Mine was easy, it only had 6 colors. The pattern was our inspiration to use the colors and interpret them in various ways.
