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.
I’m excited and appreciative to be included in this beautiful publication.
One of my art quilts appears in Art Quilting Studio’s summer issue. It was released June 1st. I am appreciative and excited to be included. Art Quilting Studio magazine is visually stunning, containing beautiful photos of the quilts, often including closer views of the details.The content is informative, the kind of information that would be of particular interest to other quilt artists.
The artists selected for inculcation are encouraged to share information about the construction of their quilt. They often include the techniques, materials and brands that they used, the kind of information that would be of particular interest to other quilt artists.
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.
How do you stand out in a crowd of people dressed in black?
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.
