2017 – Off to a good start!

SAQAAuction400

 

It’s the start of my studio season with hardly any snow, but temps in the single digits.  It’s such a joy to be once again inspired and working in the studio every day.

Above is an artwork I just started for the Studio Art Quilter’s Spotlight Auction at their annual conference.  It’s two layers of Lutradur stitched together and burned.  The inserted fabric is hand painted and I added ink highlights.  Now on to hand-stitching!  Title: December 21.

I also have in the works two new Boundary Waters – one of which I am sure to bring to completion, the other is a bit shaky at the moment.  Onward!

painted, cut, stitched, painted, stitched.

I’m so lucky to have a nature preserve nearby.  It was the inspiration for this artwork just juried into Concrete and Grassland, a Studio Art Quilt Associate’s exhibit to premier at Grant’s Pass Museum of Art in Grant’s Pass, OR in 2016.

Clover and a Bee
Detail

Miss Emily Dickinson had it right:
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.

I’m so lucky to have the a prairie nature center right across the river from me.  There are mown paths through the tall grass in summer and it’s a place of endless inspiration. Above is #12 from the bluebird house trail.
