Capturing the Sun

I loved playing with the colors and transforming my leaves into a sun-washed glow of autumn days. The silk has a wonderful sheen that really comes to life with quilting on it. The subtle color of the over-dyed print background suggests dappled shade among the leaves.

I couldn't resist the temptation to continue and am working on two companion pieces. This coming May, I will be having a gallery show in Monroe, WI and this piece (and its friends) will be there. Check the Gallery Exhibits link for the dates and exact location.


  1. This is a lovely piece! I'm going to go look at some more of your work. ;)

    My dd lives in Madison ... maybe I'll get to see your work in person some time.

    :) Linda

  2. Thank you for the comment. If you are in the Madison area in May, I hope you can travel to Monroe and check out my exhibit at the Monroe Art Center. Textile art is always so much better in person.
