Impressionist Art Quilt; Impression Sunrise In theThe Garden

Barbara Harms Fiber Art & More

This is hand painted silk.with all the flowers hand painted and appliqued on. In case you didn’t notice, there a lot of those funny little abstract flowers.Yet, this was a fun quilt to make.
In the spring, I like to have my first cup of coffee in the garden, admiring the flowers. The colors seem lit from within. The air is heavy with fragrance of the flowers, it lifts you off your bench. to smell and look at each flower.
I wonder if Monet did that in his garden at Giverny?

About Myself & My Approach To My Art About Myself & My Approach To My Art I can't remember a time in life, that art didn't play a role, in one form or another. But my primary focus as an artist, has been painting. Close to 20 years ago, I was introduced to quilting & quickly became passionate about it. However to create a quilt there are some necessary steps that have to be followed, this obviously restricts some of the creative choices. I began to miss the creative freedom possible with painting. Since there are only so many hours in a day and I had other important things going on in my life, I had to focus my interests. When I discovered mixed media art quilting, it was a great fit. The combination of quilting techniques with painting and other art skills opened new creative directions to explore. I was home! It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges. Then I follow where it leads. My approach is more of an instinctual one. I usually don't do much pre-planning. My creative choices are made as they present themselves, based on my gut feeling. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think that this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. Personal Links

  2. the quilt is very beautiful. one may think that art has to be on a canvas to be considered artwork, but wherever one decides to express their art work, should be considered art. The quilts are hand painted and they are amazing. Many of our beddings are manufactured from else where. None of the designs on my beddings are hand painted on. These quilts are amazing!

    1. Thanks so much Mirellah. I am an painter for many years so combining painting and quilting methods, thread-painting ect. came as a pretty natural of a direction for me. I love traditional quilting as well and do that too, but art is my leaning.

    2. Mirellah I appreciate your comment and
      insights about art quilting. More and more it is gaining acceptance as a art form and not just a craft or hobby it;s popularity is fast rising. That is why many collectors are buying a lot of it at the bargain prices it goes for presently ,being original work. The low prices it is now it is obtainable ,won’t last long, as the popularity raises value.It is quite a good investment at the present time. AS a painter of many years after I developed an interest in traditional quilts, before long I naturally leaned more and more to the art quilting, art using traditional methods in a unique way the painted fabrics and dyed fabric with painting & quilting but added dyeing and produced more artist formds. So fiber art was born!
