Winter Blue

12"x13", assorted cloth, stamped cloth, silver leaf and silver beads...embroidery and machine stitching, painted paper bird.
Began as a winter globe, planets, stars all frosted with silver leaf. Added the little brown bird for a perfect vantage point of oncoming winter storms. Winter here is usually mild with many shades of blue/gray skies...some rain and wind. Most overcast days I drive by the beach to see the waves stirred up and frothy.

Lucius Fabius

10"x11", sun printed leaves, acrylic painted leaves, embroidery and machine stitching, beads, assorted cloths and stamped cloth.
Title is of a Roman Senator and I've gifted this wreath in his name...just because? I had fun sun printing this summer even though I danced with the fog rolling in in late afternoons. I used the free motion quilting attachment on my sewing machine and created leaf veins...!

Autumn Sky


11"x19", assorted fabric, rust and tea stained, embroidery and sun prints.
My reaction to these last autumn sunsets. I look into my dense wooded shrubs full of leaves, nests, birds in and around sunset and wait for it all to Glow in pinks, rusts and browns. My commitment to creating from each season has begun. I plan on one more for autumn using sun print leaves.
