The intensity of the current fires is shocking, deadly. This quilt is a response to what is the "new normal" in many parts of the world. Just juried into Fiber Arts San Antonio!!

" . . . This ability to invite interaction is part of what draws
artists to the idea of cloth.
. . . It satisfies because it is active, it is tactile, and it is personal."
This is a first draft/experiment with inviting interaction with images that go beyond surface design. Using stitch to add to the surface in a graphic way. I like the stitching and the interaction, but it's still just a first pass. As a photographer, I photographed the stitched fabric outside in the shadow of a tree—leaf shadows on leaf fabric. Is the photo the art or the fabric? More to come. . . .
