This is my second day responding to an invitation by Kathy Regier to post on Facebook three images per day for five days and to invite 2 others to participate each day. Yesterday I posted 3 of my prints that are soft block prints.  You can see them at the bottom of this page.

Today, I’m sharing three art quilts that I don’t think I’ve posted before. I haven’t even given them names so I’m open to suggestions. Two of them are new and one of them is in our MA RI SAQA Trunk Show.

In the first one I incorporated some of my deconstructed screen prints from this summer’s efforts along with some of my hand dyed fabric and some commercial fabrics to create an abstract piece that celebrates natural forms within a grid.

I did the second piece as a lark.  I just felt the need to do some drawing to create some new designs and this is what came of it. I used a variety of fabrics from my own hand printeds to commercial fabrics from my stash.

And the third is another abstract piece that is part of the trunk show. It was a walk down memory lane, thinking of my grandmother and it includes some old family photos – one of me as an infant and one of the house my grandmother grew up in.

And yesterday’s post was three block prints, all for the birds!

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.
