Sometimes when I teach I get to drive to my destination. I have to say that I like the drives and really appreciate the landscapes I see along the way.
It also gives me uninterrupted time to formulate ideas and quilts in my head while I drive along.
I know this sounds crazy, but I love the flat farm fields and rolling landscape of the Mid-West where I live.
I am interested in the farms and fields and like to make little and big compositions from these car shots.
I am fascinated with barns. I want one someday. I think the idea of a big space to work in is what appeals to me about barns. I suppose though that they are rather drafty.
Illinois Landscape, was inspired by these point and shot pictures. As were all the other little quilts that follow.
Rolling By is a stripy collage style landscape with leaves and grass cut using the deckle blade in a 45mm rotary cutter.
Sister Trees is one of those composite compositions taken from the inspiration of my point and shot pics.
