Materials/Techniques: When I have taken out too much paint and I am finished with a project, I run in the house and get a piece of white PFD cloth and I paint on it. I don't have anything in mind but usually it is a start of a landscape. Those pieces may stay around for a long time until one day they tell me what they want to be. I love to free motion quilt so that is always the finish. It is thread signed. I like the colors of the borders.
Artist Statement: When I am stressed I think of a beautiful place that I have seen before and I take a snapshot for my mind. No camera needed. I recall that place and take a deep breath. My peaceful spot is a meadow. It can have birds, flowers, or just grass to lie down in. You can look at the sky and be at peace for a minute. I hope you can have a peaceful meadow also.
Dedication: To my mother who had Alzheimer's, and to my two friends that are caregivers, Ele' and Barbara.
