ebb and flow

This season seems to be a regrouping of sorts. Many works on the table and on the easel, waiting to be finished. It's OK, I like the cycle of creation as much as I like the creations themselves.  A few unadulterated shots of things in progress..

This is a piece for the 'Uniquely Fredericksburg' show due very soon.. a bird's eye view of the Rappahannock River that flows through Fredericksburg. In the stage of 'ug' right now. I am calm, though as all art goes through this stage, I'm sure.

With help from Google maps for the course of the river..

Trial and much error

and of course taking a little time to harvest from the garden!

LibertyTown first Fridays..

There is a new art show at LibertyTown, here in Fredericksburg. The theme is birds, and a piece I made got in! LibertyTown is an open studio gallery, where over 40 of us artsy-types have studios, and work. It's open to the public, so folks can come and talk and shop and see the art being made. Come out and see the new show!
This piece is again, a literary theme, based on Edgar Allan Poe's poem, "The Raven". Hand and machine quilted, pieced and embellished. I used actual book pages on it as well.
