Passing Storm

"Passing Storm" - 25"x30" - 2004
The horizontal strips of hand dyed fabric and "dry" colors evoke a feeling of the southwest. The storm has passed and the sun in shining on the horizon. Storms are a welcome event in this part of our country. That there will be another sunny day is inevitable. This relfects my optimistic feelings about life ... rough times will be followed by good ones. Or, as my family has heard me say many times, "...and this too shall pass."Technique: Crinkle quilting.
Materials: hand dyed cotton fabric, cotton thread, acrylic paint, oil pastels, acrylic medium

This piece is available at MB Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.
