If you have any love for beauty, color, quilts, design, or fine art craftsmanship, you simply must go over to Melody Johnson's website. From the artist:
As a child I thought being an artist meant only being a painter, so I did everything necessary to live out that role. Painting realistically was my aim and achievement, but it gave me no great satisfaction. In my last semester of art school, a classmate introduced me to quilting and something about its scale, process, and non-pictorial geometry attracted me. Once I made that first quilt I found an excitement that was missing from my painting experience. I switched to making quilts and have never had a moment of regret.
I can't imagine that anyone has had a moment of regret over Melody's choice of medium!
