Years ago I took a photo of my husband and oldest granddaughter walking on the beach. I always loved that photo and knew that someday I would do something special with it. After learning more about making pictorial quilts, including a workshop with Wendy Butler Berns, I made this quilt.
I enjoyed the process of making it immensely – and loved quilting it with silk thread. I used Superior’s Kimono #100, a very fine thread.
And this is the photo that I took when my granddaughter was only 2 years old. She is now a senior in high school !
I’m very excited to be represented on Fine Art America.
This is a Print on Demand service. I have placed select photography on the site and will add more. These photos are available in a large variety of sizes as well as note cards. Matting and framing are optional. Please take a look and let me know what you think.! Thank you !!
BTW, if you have seen other photography or art work on my site that you would like in the form of a print or greeting card, please let me know and I will upload the image to FAA. I usually keep my original digital images and most of them are fairly high resolution.
I am fascinated by the patterns made by sunshine as it is filtered through dense foliage. Below is the Haiku that I wrote and the image that came to mind. It is a photo that I took while visiting the massive old trees in the Armstrong Redwoods State Park in California.
The Challenge – Take the prompt word: Beginnings – Where do you go in your mind? Write a Haiku that is prompted by these thoughts. Create a piece of Art that represents the haiku. You can use whatever technique or medium that you like.
