As promised in the last post, I have completed a piece inspired by the photograph of the flower seed fields taken near Silverton, Oregon. I called it The Flower Seed Grower. Below is the original photo in case you missed it in the previous post. The size of this piece is 12" by 12". I find that this is a very saleable size to offer in galleries. I did a little more thread painting than usual in the flower fields.
I also made another 12" by 12" piece at the same time. Once again, I found inspiration in one of my photos from Ebey's Prairie on Whidbey Island in Washington State. I added some Queen Anne's lace flowers to change things up a little bit. Everyone seems to enjoy any of these scenes with the barbed wire in the foreground. It must be the contrast of hard with soft, both in the colors and the organic background. I titled this one (what else?) Prairie V.
I hope these little scenes bring you the sense of peace and timelessness that I feel when I am looking at inspiration photos and in the making of them.
