Unleashing the Inner Animal Challenge

Quilting Arts magazine had a reader challenge to find your inner animal. I depicted myself as a white persian cat. The hair is the same color. Even though I may look sweet, I can be agressive when necessary as shown by the captured mouse. However, I was not selected to be a finalist in the challenge so mine will not be in the magazine.

Harry's 60th Birthday

This is the portrait that I did of Harry for his birthday. All of his guests were so impressed.

I also showed it during show and tell at quilt meeting.

Athens, Greece doorway

This is the first of my new series. I have been gathering fabric and taking photos for the doorways or portals. While traveling I became intrigued by these old doors. I could let my imagine run wild as to who had passed through them, what had happened behind them, etc.

I loved the layers of paint and the revealing of colors by cracking and peeling. It is 19"x21.5". The price is $250.

Seafoam Bowl

This is my latest bowl. I wanted to give the illusion of water and green space. It is a reflection of the creek that flows past the house. The round beads have 3-dimensional frogs on them. There is a smooth green stone attached to the top of the bowl. It is 15" wide and 6" tall. This is my husband's favorite.
