Once again, I’m taking a class with Pam Allen.  Here’s a little quilt I did,  about 10″ X 11″ based on a photo from a building at the MBL in Woods Hole that Andy took on a gorgeous summer morning a couple years ago.

Lesson 1 C  copy

It’s a study using the color palette used by Van Gogh in one of his Olive Tree paintings. Although it is the same palette, it’s a bit more vibrant than the more muted tones he used.  The water just seemed to sparkle and it became pretty much the focal point here.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. Wow! I really like what you’ve been doing. I can’t believe you’re taking a class. You should be teaching one! Boats on water are always nice. You made a perfect little piece. Are you framing these? You might like to think about it! Hugs, Pam
