Banner

I made a banner for the Flying Geese Quilters Guild recently.  The banner is displayed at meetings and other Guild events. 

It measures about 25” X25”. I collaged and painted the geese in the center. The flying geese are reverse appliqu├ęd. 

Here it is:

String Theory

I am taking a drawing class and recently completed this:



Someone in the class suggested I call it “String Theory”. I thought that was kind of clever and used it. It measures 18”x24”.

Elsinore Sunrise Painting

This oil painting is based on a photo I took on Ortega Highway early in the morning. I was near the Lookout Bar and the sun was making beautiful colors in the clouds and on the water.

Mug Rugs

My fiber art group did a mug rug exchange. These are the mug rugs I made and sent out:









They measure around 8” x 10”. I used oil paint stick around a feather template to create the design. The edge is a flat yarn that is couched with a zig zag stitch.

Modjeska House Plein Air Painting

I started this at the Helen Modjeska Historic House and Gardens in Silverado, California several months ago, before Covid. I did not like the way it looked when I left that location and it sat for a long time waiting for me to figure out what to do to fix it. I've been taking painting classes and those helped me see a way to salvage it. It was almost completely reworked in my home studio, but never the less, it is finished now.
