Just can't seem to take a straight picture one-handed
I have been a subscriber for many years and it's the best art bargain. I think one of the things I love about DMTV and the Kemshalls is their wide use of many mediums. They dye, stitch, paint, paint on fabric, and sketch to name but a few. They taught me how to use sketchbooks and then to interpret my sketchbook work into fabrics. I have shown many of those "paper to fabric" pieces on this blog.
Another truly valuable bit of information I got from both mother and daughter is "permission" to work around a print of a photo by extending the scene, cutting out bits to collage in my sketchbook or even trace then move on to a design from that image. They sometimes refer to these a "quick cheats" but they are actually creativity primers.
I really can't say enough about both of these amazing women and their DMTV. One years subscription is actually less than most one day workshops. One year is just under $100. US dollars - a massive bargain. You have immediate access to about 30 archived shows so start with the oldest and watch them forward. No contest, this is the best money I have ever spent on art. It is priceless.
p.s. I am mending well and thanks for the kind wishes
