Coming Back to Earth

Well, moving sure took it's toll on my blogging.  I see I haven't posted since May which was about the time our house went on the market.  It has been a whirlwind ever since.  Believe it or not, things are actually looking calmer as the end of December approaches.

I have been working in the studio in spite of all the moving uproar, working hard!  I am part of a show at the Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene for the month of January with a group of five art quilters.  We each chose a main color to work with in all our pieces.  From that we were allowed to use the color across the color wheel from our chosen color and any neutral colors.  The kicker?  We each needed to provide five main quilts, plus five other pieces, which could be old work.  However, in my crazy head, I decided that even the additional five pieces needed to be new work. 

I chose the color Blue. That has meant working with Orange as well.  The piece pictured above is called Altitude.  It is a pretty obvious use of blue and orange.  A second piece, below, is a more subtle rendition of that color combination.  I called this one Fallow Fields. The five main pieces each measure 24" wide by 30" high.
Here is a small detail of the larger piece.  I had not yet finished the hand stitched rain lines when this was taken but I think you can see where I'm going. 
Next post will show more pieces.  I am currently working on #8.  
 Boy, it feels good to be "back"!
