(You need to read the previous post to know what I am doing!!) Here are photos of the art in our dining room. The art with glass is photographed at an angle to prevent the reflecton of the flash.
This is a beautiful print by a Japanese printmaker which Steve picked up on one of his many trips to Japan.
This is the real deal – a Robert Motherwell – “Espania”.
This is an old etching from Europe that used to be in my MIL’s house. I found it in my BIL’s garage in Annapolis. It was moldy and dirty and the frame was broken. I took it to a restorer and had it reframed. I think it is happy with it’s new life next to the ultra modern Motherwell.
Some objet d’art given to me by my MIL back in the ’70’s. It has sentimental value.
I have fused glass!! I love this piece by a local Santa Rosa woman. She is originally from France.
On a trip to Monterey, I found this print of a painting of Big Sur – had to have it in North Carolina as a reminder of the beautiful coast here.
The only quilt in the dining room is this collage called Winter Tuscan Sunset. I also have an etching of this which will show up later. This was done by pinning bits of fabric to batting and covering with tulle and then stitching the heck out of it. It really looks great with the golden yellow walls in the dining room. The tree and the vineyard were added after the quilting of the background.
For the quilter’s out there, here is a close-up.
