Another Wall in Timberline
Because we are showing art pieces of Yosemite, I thought of this piece I did a few years ago.. It was a series of the 4 seasons.. Winter, ( above) and Summer available, the other seasons are sold. The sparkling blue sky's and snow crystals falling on the brown earth during the winter months are what made me choose these fabrics.I used many of my hand dyes and some batiks. Winter is one of my favorite seasons now.. Used to be summer, but as I get a bit older, the cooler months are my favorite.
Julie Mitchell has a wonderful collection of her special Spirit Figures, they are usually scattered about the gallery, but this time she grouped the ladies all together..
Below: Kathleen's wonderful colorful paintings are the happiest pieces to see. I have her "Create", piece hanging in my bedroom... Important reminder to Create the day, however, I want.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
