Nature is so amazing.. We must take a second to appreciate her wonderful colors. From the palest, to the brilliant..
I love Hollyhocks, they are tall, waving in the breezes, the petals like delicate, tissue thin skin, and with a few wrinkles. The stocks are strong, but the flowers are so dainty, the markings so exact, in shades of green and the palest yellows.. What a blessing to be able to give away so many wonderful seeds out of the dried pods.. Sharing friendship through seeds and beauty.
Sun flowers are all over our hill. Each year when they come up by themselves I throw the heads full of seeds, over the side, and now it is a forest of bright smiling sun flower faces, turning to reach the sun.
What a joy to see gold bobbing bright in the morning. Who said we don't have gold on our land it is here for everyone to see and enjoy.
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.
