This is the fiber art piece that I’ve been working on for the last few months. It is a depiction of my husband and one of his friends sitting stream side looking at a river. This photo is of the quilt top. My next step is basting and then machine quilting. Whenever I get to this stage it feels like “It’s all downhill from here!”.
I will post more once it’s finished. I hope you are making good use of your home confinement. Although I’m not happy about missing out on my normal life, I do appreciate being able to get through this project.
A year ago I visited Caspers Wilderness Park with a friend to do some plein air painting. It had been a wet winter and there was still water running in the arroyo. I had never seen water in it before. There were tiny frogs on the bank and a few people on horseback forded the stream to head up the trail.
I hope you are healthy and doing your best to get through the corona virus crisis. I’m keeping busy with art projects and other hobbies. I also am making some face masks for healthcare workers who are doing so much right now. Here’s my first batch:
A big thank you to those working in the front lines fighting this thing!
Take care of yourself and hang in there. This too shall pass!
This is a painting I recently completed during a plein air painting day at the beach. I believe this was at Dana Point, near the Ocean Institute.
It was a very windy, cloudy day and the sun could barely be seen through the clouds at times. There was rain in the forecast for the next day, which made for some dramatic skies. We don’t get these kind of cloudy days often. I exaggerated the blue tones a bit. The sun rays on the water were beautiful.
