I designed this piece very loosely around a photo I took a couple of years ago up at Tomales Bay. One of the reasons that I love that area so much is that it – and the nearby marshes – are home to so many shore birds. And that is the basis for the title.
This was such an interesting piece to construct. With the theme “water” guiding my choices and my personal desire to create depth of color and texture, I searched my stash for possible fabric to include. This included an amazing variety of blues – occurring in silk, cotton, blends, rayon, ribbons.
A few of my fabric pieces were pre-fused with Misty-fuse; the rest I just pinned on until the stitching.
This piece will be shown in August as part of the Surface Art Association Cloth Stories Exhibit.
The exhibition will be at the Betsy Lueke Creative Arts Center Gallery in Burbank, California from August 3 – 23, 2018.
Opening reception is on Friday, August 3, from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
