The above are painted silk on canvas. I enjoy working with this medium.
Here are a few more of my pieces:
The piece on the left, "Warts 'N' All" is quilted and then stretched over stretcher bars. The center piece, "Something Fishy III" is quilted and not mounted. "Standing on Her Own 2 Feet" is quilted and mounted on acid free foam core.
My mind has been working overtime the past few days, thinking about "Waitress" the newly released movie that C and I saw last weekend. It stars the lovely Keri Russel, handsome Nathan Fillion and our old friend Andy Griffith. While quilting away the other day and listening to some NPR podcasts, I heard an interview with Andy Griffith in which he talked about the recent murder of Adrienne Shelley, Waitress' director, writer and who also played the part of Dawn, another waitress. If you want to read more about the senseless murder of this talented young woman, go here. I am still having a difficult time putting this to rest.....is it ok to murder somebody just because you're having a bad day????
