Cactus Flower: February 24, 2021

In the January of 2020, we spent a week in Tucson, AZ and visited the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, where we took hundreds of photos.

Splash (Photos on Fabric) Slide Show: February, 2021
.

In 2018 I made a quilt called Splash for a SAQA juried show called Shifting Tides. The show was for quilts about the environment of the Pacific Ocean and open to artists from the Pacific states, California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, and Hawaii. The traveling schedule took it to the Visions Art Museum in the Winter of 2021, and the museum had to close because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Visions organized a series of artists’ talks on Zoom in February and March, and this is an expanded version of my artist’s presentation. The show includes a lot of information about how I have used photos in my quilts. To see the slide show, CLICK HERE or on the pictures.

Inauguration : January 2021
.
Caryl & Ron celebrate the inauguration with our friends Cindy and Dave, socially distanced, of course, around our fire pit, outdoors on our deck overlooking Puget Sound. Toasting with hot spiced cider, followed by zuccini-chicken soup. It's 43° so we're in lots of layers.
.
Remote Float #1: Completed January 10, 2021
.

This is my first quilt of 2021. In February 2020 we did a photographic workshop/tour in Antarctica. I loved the peaceful image of this cormorant, floating among the ice bergs in the remote and pristine wilderness. I decided to incorporate a lot of negative space in my design and digitally painted the background in a gradation from aqua to white. To see the whole story and larger images, CLICK HERE or on the pictures.
