Q&A with Carol Ann Waugh

Ardelle Coult asked:
I really love this piece. I don't have an artistic cell in my body, but I'm sure having fun trying!
Carol Ann Waugh answered:
Thanks! And trust me, you DO have artistic cells. You just have to find them through discovery!

jchalkides@gmail.com asked:
I love this. I don't understand exactly how you did it. Are they separate pieces stitched onto one large piece of background fabric?
Carol Ann Waugh answered:
It's rather complicated. The large rectangle is one piece and all the circles are made separately but I also stitched some free-standing circles directly onto the large rectangle.
HappyGenny asked:
These are all lovely. Some are truly very artistic works. Some I'd LOVE to own. But this one calls me, really calls me. I'm a huge fan of Gustav Klimt, and you seem to be channelling him here in a very modernized way. Love, love, love it! I'd even buy it in a heartbeat - seriously. Check him out if you aren't 'familiar: https://www.google.ca/search?q=Gustav+Klimt&hl=en&prmd=imvnsloa&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=_tn2T46nA4ev0AG20rjlBg&ved=0CGgQsAQ&biw=1148&bih=703
Carol Ann Waugh answered:
I am familiar with Klimt and also love his work. I think we are all influenced by other artists -- even sub-conciously. Actually, this piece was just purchased by a mining company here in Denver. I will be happy to see it once in a while because this is one of my favorites too!
