Longview, WA USA
Width: 9" Length: 12"
Materials/Techniques: I made the octopus and the crab on separate cloth and colored it and free motion quilted it and then attached them to the background. Those pieces were colored with Inktense pencils and the background was done with acrylic paints. There is free motion quilting and couched yarn for seaweed. It is thread signed.
Artist Statement: I live very near the Columbia River and the Pacific. That which is not seen is always a mystery. I think it is both beautiful and ugly but I would rather think about it with some humor.
Dedication: To my mother who had Alzheimer's and to my friends Ele' and Barbara. They have been great caregivers.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
