New Art Acquisition

This is a wood block print by Diana Flack that I bought at the show this past week-end. It is titled, Annie’s Quilt, and is an homage to a Gee’s Bend Quilt. She put a little replica of the original quilt in the corner. Be sure to click the images to see them larger.

You can see the original here.

Yesterday morning, I helped to take down the show and get art work organized for the artists to pick up. I got an attack of vertigo and a horrendous sinus headache and had to come home. I have not accomplished much for two days. Lisa and Clay are coming tomorrow. I need to clean up the house and get some vegan food in the fridge. So, I hope I feel better tomorrow.

Mr C has been painting away down in my studio. We have changed the woodwork from a bronzy brown to this off white. I like it so much better. It makes the whole studio seem lighter and airier.

I started quilting the aspen background fabric and ran into problems. I didn’t get very far and I ripped it out. I think I might have to go on a thread buying trip!

    I love the new studio colors – makes me hungry for key lime pie. The homage to Gee’s Bend is beautiful. Have fun with Lisa and Clay and heal.

    the quilt and the tribute are sweet pieces. makes me wonder if the Gees Bend quilts will continue to exhibit as they create new pieces?
