.~Down To Earth in Textile.~

I was playing around with my fabrics on Sunday. I always wanted to try and recreate the painting I did of Down to Earth in fabric. I still have a few things to add, but thought I 'd share what I've done so far with you. It still has the essence of the original painting, but I could not help but put some spring colors in it. I especially like the color bubbles. Spring is gurggling from the earth. I can feel it, can you?
When the top is done, I will then send it to Sylvia Gauthier, master quilter, and have her work her magic. The it will go into our etsy mercantile. Can't wait until we get that up and running.

About Me

My photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
