This is a photo of the sun rising on the Sea of Galilee. It was taken by one of the photographers who accompanied us on our trip. I want to interpret this with fabric.

I painted this silk shantung organza last summer.

I rotary cut it into strips which I laid over a reddish orange dupioni silk. I want some of the dupioni to show through and look like the sun reflected on the water.

I then laid a layer of green tulle over the fabric pieces.

Then, the tulle gets pinned down. I am running out of pins. I bought a new package, but I can’t find them!!

Once the whole piece is assembled, I will stitch the heck out of it. This piece will be about 28″ X 38″.
