Lovely Littles Exhibit

I am pleased to say that my work will be among a group of artists showing small works of art, all for sale, at Creative Framing & Gallery in Oakland, CA. All works will be 12″ or less on any side. All media will be represented.

My works will include 14  fabric postcards, each mounted on 8″ x 10″ archival, museum-quality matt, ready to frame. Here are a few of the postcards that will be there:

In addition, I will have several 12″ x 12″ art quilts there including 3 of my newest pieces — Sumac, Oakleaf Hydrangea and Maples — created using botanical prints.  Here is Maples

Here are the details:

Maples Done

The work in progress I shared here is now complete. It measures 12″ x 12″. Click on image for a larger view.

I quilted the bottom section using the marks left by the twine used to wrap the fabric bundles during the printing process. They made for a simple, effective design. Then I fussed and dithered about how to quilt the silk screened piece on the right side. Ultimately I decided that simplicity was in order. I had enough quilting design in the other two sections and the silk screened design was quite enough for the right side. So, simple lines is what I did. A detail:

I couldn’t resist adding the beads. And, interestingly enough, this work is created entirely with silk fabrics. The botanical print fabrics are silk noil, the screen printed fabric is a very light-weight silk and the binding is a raw silk. Each has its own signature look and texture. I am very pleased with the way they play off one another while creating harmony.

On to the next! I have a lovely sumac print that is waiting for me. What do you have waiting for you that has your creative juices running?
