Flash Dancing

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

This is a detail of Green Flash. I finished it today. So, I am flash dancing. Here is the full image.

I felt this piece needed something to give it some focus so I added the little squares of green silk in an undulating pattern which I stitched with matching thread. I love the counter point to the linear pattern of the quilt and the bit of whimsy that this detail adds. It made me happy to to this today.

For those who don’t know why I have titled this Green Flash. There is phenomenon that happens when the sun sets over the ocean and supposedly, just as the sun dips below the horizon, there is a green flash.

I found this photo from Coastranger on Flickr. It illustrates this phenomenon.

I also have finished my chapter for the book. I just have to write a bio and an artist’s statement for each of  my other pieces.
