Gwen Jones quilt artist

Just returned from a visit to my hometown and fortunatly was able to see the last showing at Peter Jones gallery which is closing after 25 years. This is a picture of Gwen Jones standing in front of some of her quilt works. I haven't seen Gwen for ages but it felt like yesterday that we were working on art projects together. I sent for a few of her mini quilts to hang in my new studio space for inspiration. I need to start working on an art project for the Presbytery of East Iowa which is based upon the bibilical story of Jesus and the "Woman at the Well" found in John 4:1-42. The show will be called Art as Living Water and will travel around the country next year. I have been formulating the peice in my head .Your prayers and inspiration will be appreciated. The windows for my studio should be in today and then the new art room can be completed . Hope it is finished soon as I must get to work on my art.Thank you all for your wonderful inspiration
