This first piece was actually meant to be the leaf form of a plant. Michael suggested that I turn it on its side and create a landscape. I did not have any of the 'right' fabrics for it but somehow I managed to do it. I like what happened...
One of Michael's favorite lines is ' size matters'. Here I scaled up my distorted seed pods to a grand scale and created three of them, each one being at least 12" on a side.
The first top is a stand of tall trees mixed with dogwoods. (Still need to quilt it).
The second top (a work in progress...)
is based on a picture of the Gardens of Lombardy
from a book of Italian Gardens that Edith Wharton loved.

Homage2Matisse is based on one of his collages.
Finally, "Black and white and red all over" is an abstraction and uses the scraps from the previous one.
