This is one of the art quilt I started a little while back “Hot Air Rising”. I thought I’d post the result. This silk painted fiber art quilt is a combination of oranges and dark blue. I threw in a touch of copper and gold metalic. Lately I’ve been just mad for orange and dark blue. They look fantastic side by side.
I’ve been pretty busy last few months working on a commissioned piece. I really enjoyed working on it and I’m happy with how it turned out.
I took a moment to catch my breath and now I’ve started a new art quilt. It’s an abstract this time.
I love the colors orange and dark blue when they are used together. They set each other off and look awesome. When I painted the silk I wanted to feature those two colors in deep rich concentrations. I also added some elements of metallic gold and copper in there.
Here are a few shots of this new quilt in progress. It’s an abstract. I’ve finished the the applique and begun the thread painting. I want a very linear look.
