Essentials: New Color

Essentials #6
Hand dyed cottons, silk, commercial cotton stripe, fused, machine quilted. 13x18". Shown here resting on the new 16x20" panel. I haven't painted it yet, but will allow the purchaser to decide what color the panel should be. $110 plus shipping. Email me. SOLD
 I decided to try working with other colorways, to see if I could make these compositions look more like me. As you can see, I couldn't resist adding more details than usual, and the hand dyed fabrics are unlike the flat color of the previous work.
 I continue to feel that the spare look is important.
And for a real change of color, I found some soft earthy shades in my stash and added blues to offset the terracotta and blackened orange. This is Essentials #5 and is hand dyed cottons, fused, machine quilted, 18x20". $100. 


  1. Essential #6-my favorite so far. I really like ALL of your newest compositions,but I'm just not a fire engine red kind of person,so the colors in #6 are more appealing to me. As always,thanks for taking the time share. Julie
