First it was all about quilting and then dyeing and then I started making books and zentangling and drawing. Now I have given up on limiting myself and this is all about my creative journey. Hope you'll join me on my journey and invite me on yours!
While in Columbus OH visiting grandkids we visited a field of cement corn statues. I won't argue the art-worthiness of the pieces but they do represent the history of corn in that location. Beside the "corn" field, there was a stand of Osage Orange trees planted to illustrate their history. Ahhh....now there was beauty!
I have become enraptured with trees. I love the different textures of the bark. I love the different shapes the trunks take and the different ways the branches and leaves grow. These trees have a very textured bark, and their trunks and branches remind me of snakes in their shape. I plan to turn these pictures into quilts of hand dyed fabric with dark lino prints of the trees laid over. I hope I can get the essence of the trees in the quilts.
