Painted Quilt Tribute

     Ever since I saw the photo of Wanda on her blog, I knew I needed to paint it as a tribute. I knew it needed some of her quilts in it. It took a lot of time, thought, and "piecing", but I am very pleased with the tribute to Wanda- one of the greatest influences and star of my quilting life.  It is watercolor about 11 x 14. I hope I don't have to watermark it to keep it from being pirated.
     Thanks for looking at my "quilts". I notice a thread on the painting after it was all cropped and all. I will have to reshoot it when the sun comes out.

I actually know Wanda. She used to come to the Quilts of Valor sew-ins, years ago, and I met her there several times. Nice painting.

Love, love, LOVE your painting!! With the added quilts, it's even better than the inspiration photo. Beautiful work!!

This is just the loveliest tribute! I think you've embedded it with good feelings, too. I want to be in the painting with her.

Beautiful. It is a perfect tribute and such an wonderful painting you did. It is so real that I think we could just sit down there with her for a little while.

This is absolutely exquisite, both as a tribute and as a watercolor. I cannot imagine how you did all those triangles so perfectly....watercolor is not a precise medium. I'm sure Wanda will be flattered with this; she is just an amazing woman in all respects.
