Are we there yet? Well three years later, yes!
Nothing like hanging a piece vertically for visual improvement. Ignore the washed out look in the verticle orientation, the true color is the horizontal piece. This only proves that I really need to drag the lights and the good camera out for this sorta thing.
I was going to do my latest work on canvas I had painted, but decided on this piece instead. I always knew it wasn't finished and just kept it out of site until now.
It's clay painted, pigment painted, and dye painted with fermented dyes. It's machine stitched and hand stitched with threads that are dyed with natural dyes.
The horizontal lines were grasses, when the quilt hung horizontally, but in reality it works better this way, waves of wind flowing across the prairie.
It'll get there, eventually
