Quilt National 2012

This is one of three of my newest works that didn't make the cut for Quilt National. This was my favorite.
Depicts a pile of rocks collaged digitally with a journal page. Printed on pre-treated digital canvas. Stitched with several colors of thread for design emphasis. Cut apart & tied with a type of bookbinding knot. Edges finished with paint.
The Rocks are Smiling

This is my tribute to love of nature, to bring awareness to our 21st problem of the environmental crisis. Our tender earth needs our help. Industrial farming is reducing the varieties of food. Varieties created over centuries. Pesticides are contributing to disease. Our reliance on petroleum based products, oil, plastics and Styrofoam, are killing us. When we will take action?
 When the earth remembers?

Thank you- it actually is 2 pix of things I hold dear- my rock pile shrine and page from my journal, combined in Photoshop and overlaid with another pix of my painted fabric.
so in a very special way it is sacred. my art are my prayers
