Notes, D.H.Lawerence

Squeeeedly deeedly deadly dee!

'Notes' another work sold! 

Painted, monoprinted, thermal fax silkscreen of quote by D.H. Lawrence, and drawing. Silk noil, quilted, and presented on stretcher bars. 8x24 set of 5 notes 

Notes was inspired by one of my favorite quilt artists- Joan Schultz and potter and poet- Paulus Berenshon. 
Joan, the technique and freedom to mono-print fabric. 
Paulus, the poetry and words. 

These pieces were mono printed several times and silkscreened with part of a poem by D H Lawrence, unreadable but in part. I created an type of automatic writing with acrylic that highlights parts of the pieces. This too is unreadable but makes one inspect the piece closer. 
They are just notes, things one writes to remember.

Tender Revelations

Throw Back Thursday Art Quilt

Tender Revelations
2003-  was enthused by reading the book, "After the Ecstasy, The Laundry" by Jack Kornfield. I was returning from a session at the Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle. Maine and listening to the book tape. I had to keep stopping to jot down notes in my journal. Tender Revelations  was inspired from this quote; " What can we expect when we enter the forest? To listen more deeply to the quiet. The first steps bring us amazements of tender revelations."
All fabrics are created by the artist. They are dyed, mono-printed, sprayed, sun printed, painted and stamped. The fabrics are cottons, silk noil and organza. I intuitively curve- piece and quilt the artwork.
