Swaying in the Swirls

Following my walk, I attempted to translate the blowing winds and the swirling snow into a fabric composition. I chose an off-white batik for the background and sheer fabrics as accents. A pale yellow sun is almost obliterated by the sheer force of the swirling snow. The cattails were hand-stitched. Beads add a bit of sparkle to the snow even with the sun's limited rays. The fabric piece was quilted, finished and mounted on a painted canvas.
