In any case, I'm happy with the piece. It was just pleasure to make, imagining myself creating rock paintings or decorating a cave. There's something about the way rust works on fabric that feels very primal--a bit shadowy, amorphous, undefined shapes that you can make into something or leave alone. I have a wonderful book of petroglyph photos that I consulted for guidance on the background painting.
Eagle Lake is celebrating its 125th birthday next weekend with costumes, a 5K run, dutch oven cooking, a beard-growing contest, old cars and tractors and art exhibits. I have a few pieces in the adult art exhibit--"It's All Good," "Faded Sanctuaries " (which includes the ruin of a building in Eagle Lake), and "Pillar of cloud/Pillar of fire," my 9/11 quilt. No prizes in this one, just a chance to show off to my new neighbors.
You can find "It's All Good" on the website.
