Sunday Stills: Sunrise and a Sneak Preview

Taken this morning, a quilt-batting sky indicating some precipitation is on its way.

Ball Moss backlit by the sunrise.

Sunrise through pomegranate petals.


I'm leaving today for another week-long quilting adventure, this year with Jeannette DeNicolis Meyer in a class called Elements of Style described as Intermediate Adventurous. We were asked to bring an idea or sketch of the quilt on which we'd like to work. Since the instructor's forte is abstract art quilting, I thought I might try to interpret my more realistic style in an abstract way. About the only way I can express abstraction is through my photography. So, I composited my photos of a shadow on the wall, the parasitic plant in the river, the colors in my new bedroom rugs, and a woodcut of plant into my final, abstract idea.




Perhaps some portion of this will emerge into an art quilt wall hanging? I will be blogging daily about the process, so stay tuned!

For more Sunrise/Sunsets, visit Sunday Stills!

The ball moss is interesting - I've never seen it before. Your quilt project is cool; I can't imagine how you are going to quilt that, so I'm going to start following your blog to see the process!

Loved that you used the sunset/rise in a different way. Also many think abstraction is an easy thing. They look at an abstract painting and scoff "I could do that!" But then let them try it. You have a wonderful eye, and your abstract photo's are beautiful. I've a series of abstracts photo's that I need to get on here. I actually won an award for them. Keep up your abstract photography.
