Storms on the Lake

There have been a lot storms out over the lake this past week. High winds have kicked up white caps and big waves. That weather has been my influence for this piece.
Lake #36 - 13"x 12.5"
Once again, I forgot to take a photo before machine quilting it. I remembered mid-way through the lake section. The definition of the quilting patterns always amazes me.

This one along with eight other pieces in this series was delivered to Good Good's gallery this afternoon. That's another thing that amazes me ... having my work in a gallery ... YIPPEE!!!

That top one reminds me of when i was growing up in Southern Ontario and would stand in the backyard all brave but shivering, watching the thunderclouds move in----thanks for the memory!

Nellie I am blown away by the beauty of your work. Just a quick glance at your gallery and I fell head over heels for the beautiful colours in the crinkled series. You are a wonderful and inspirational artist!!!

Nellie, you capture the rhythm and feeling of the water so beautifully - the first one is especially lyrical.
