Trees Through The Forest : The Start of A New Quilt

Rather than make a bag yesterday, as I had originally planned to do, I decided to start the painting for a new whole cloth quilt. This will actually be the sort of prototype for a large piece that I have been thinking of doing for some time. I used Stewart Gill paints, and since this early photo was taken, have started to add some texture for the 'ground'. I hope I can get the logistics worked out - because I really want to do a large version of this if I can figure it all out and make it look like what's floating around in my head !

I love trees too but I'm no artist with paints. It will be interesting to see what you have planned.

how big is it? it is very enveloping just looking on the computer screen...looking forward to seeing it progress.

Hi Karoda:
This is only 12"X12". I wanted to make it for the SAQA auction this coming year -and that's the size they want. The large version will be 50" square - or perhaps a bit more of a rectangle. I am glad I am doing a small version because there ARE some technical things to figure out with paints - and I am unskilled! Would you consider sending me your email address? I can't reply directly to you without it - or so it seems. Happy Holidays and Merry New Year !
