Well, that was a long break! I got lots of inspiration in California, which I'll share soon, but first, let's look at this textile art by New Zealander Jane Denton. She uses color beautifully, and her work couldn't be simpler and more perfect. It's both modern (clean lines, abstraction) and a throwback (embroidery!). It's just a little bit girly—but not too. I recommend a lot of art on this blog, but I really might have to buy one of these pieces for myself.
