Starting Sept. 1st, I am in a show at Fox Run, a gallery in a continuum of care facility in Orchard Park, NY. I need to make new work and have spent the last month rushing to do it. See mess below.
Using small strips of blue batiks cut into columns and resewn, I created a sky that would not be just a blue hunk of color, but the dynamic differences of tones in the sky. Then, I cut the landscape hills and ironed the top edge under and layered the fabrics.
I chose this one and mounted the landscape after stapling the background fabric to the prestretched canvas (coupon at Joanns). I sewed the landscape at the corners using monofilament thread with a button behind on the canvas to distribute the pull of the threads and make it easier if I have to remove the quilt.
Here is Summer Wonder.
