Just received word that my piece A Good Day at Saint-Remy has been accepted to the Texas Quilt Museum's exhibit "Butterflies and Their Beautiful Kin," April 3-June 29, 2014. Following the exhibit in LaGrange TX, it will tour with "Butterfly Whirl: Contemporary Quilt Art" through January, 2018. How cool is that? Possibly an excuse to visit some of the (as yet unannounced) future venues.
Special thanks go to Pam McManus, my dyeing partner, and to the unknown crochet artist who created the dresser scarf/center panel in taupe cotton. And, of course, to Rick Wells, who made this great photo and paid special attention to showing the shadows made by openings in the piece.
The photo is a trifle overexposed, but you get the idea. I have to say that after seeing it on the wall, I have plans to add a little enhancement when it comes home later this month. Some of the woven arabesques need to be brought out with paint, probably greenish-bronze. The more I think about it, the more I'm itching to get my hands back into this piece. I guess nothing is ever really finished in the mind of the maker.
OK, time to make some cookie dough for baking later today. Stay warm, my friends.
