I Never Knew, So Many Wonderful Things Waiting To Be Discovered

If you’ve noticed I haven’t been around much, lately. I’ve been keeping mighty busy working on a new commission from an Australian psychologist. To

She has given me a very interesting project. My client wants a large art quilt with a beautiful Australian tree called a royal poinciana as the subject.

 I’d never heard of it, so the search began.What I found was a gorgeous tree! When in full bloom it is covered with masses of bright orange/red blossoms. The flowers are so pretty!

This tree has some interesting characteristics, of course the first being those fantastic flowers. It has long twisting limbs, curving  in many directions. Those limbs can form unusual shaped trees. Then there are the leaves, which look like fern fronds.

The next step was drawing some practice sketches to get a feel for the tree

 

I decided that I wanted to place the focus on those beautiful flowers. When the tree is  blooming, great bunches of these red/orange flowers cover the tree. I have a few branches hanging down from the right side. This tree is just beginning to bloom.

At this point in working on this art quilt, it doesn’t look like much….yet. Often created work when seem mid way, will look much different completed

.I’ve made a lot of progress on it more than I’ve shown here.

If you’re interested I’m going to post a few progress photos as it moves along.

My method I use many traditional quilting techniques in a non traditional application. Some of the techniques are used as a design element rather than a practical step in the quilt making process. I hand paint my fabric, often choosing silk It has a luminous quality which seems to reflect light and rich color beautifully. All my work is original. I love the process, starting with a seed of an idea and seeing where that leads. The results can be surprising, at times. I love that unpredictable element. I feel that challenging yourself on occasion prevents your work from become static. I choose projects which I personally find excite interest or challenge me. I feel my enthusiasm can be sensed by the viewer and I think that is what attracts those who enjoy my work

The next step, I began the practice drawings, lots of them.
