Art Quilting Studio magazine

  1. I am excited to tell you. Art Quilting Studio magazine is  publishing another one my art quilts in it’s latest summer issue.  This time it is my Red Egret At Waters Edge. I tried to capture the sparkling glimmer created by the suns rays reflected as it sinks  lower in sky. 

Here’s some pictures of of my “Egret” as published in the magazine. It is a beautiful magizane and the content addresses the kind of information that most art quilters would be interested to know; techniques, materi:als and jibrands used, etc.

Red Egret-late afternoon

Red Egret

As the sun sinks lower in the sky, its rays shimmer as they are reflected off the water. At the water’s edge stands a red Egret. 

I used silk as a backdrop for the initial painting. then thread painted the picture itself. I am especially proud of my egret. It’s plumage contains layers upon layers of different threads to create the depth of color.

Contrast, make your art quilts POP!

 

Put two opposites side by side, what happens?

How do you stand out in a crowd of people dressed in black?

Wear whit

I make art quilts for sale and  I do silk paintings. I want my work

to get noticed. Do you want art work that stands out on your walls?

Contrast can make a big difference.

Strong contrasts make things  stand out, they are noticed  immediately, commanding  your attention. A strong contrast will intensify the impact of the contrasting items.

The definition of the word contrast is the state of being strikingly different from something else, typically something in juxtaposition or close association.

Why my interest? I’ve been thinking about contrasts lately and more to the point, how can they be used effectively in to create interesting fiber art quilts.  I’ll get to that query later. But first I have one of my little stories to relate.

   Sane or insane? Earthling or alien?

Contrast, make your art quilts POP!
