The Rewards of Wasting Time

I sometimes feel guilty about the time I spend on the Internet, particularly when I know I am putting off seeing if my great idea for solving a design problem is really going to work or when some part of a quilt is not going well and I don't want to face up to it. But then I happen upon something like the works of Hugette Caland, an artist whom I had never heard of before, and I know all this wandering on the web might just be contributing something to my life. Her works are on canvas and linen and she uses pens to make tiny little lines that look like stitches surrounded by colors so rich you can lose yourself in them. But even her dark gray pieces are worth spending time with.

And thanks to Deb Lacativa for pointing me in her direction.

thank you for the lead - I think web browsing is very inspiring but can also be an incredible time waster! I have to discipline myself not to spend too long
