Seeking Essence 36.5" x 14.5" 2010

Although not actually a series, here is another "seeking" quilt.  The tea bowls are a metaphor for the sometimes emotional journey to be an artist.  To quote the late Leonard Cohen, "There is a crack in everything.  That is how the light gets in."

Celtic Windows 53" x 30" 2009

I'm sharing this quilt again because it won a First Place ribbon at the Best of the Valley Quilt Show last week.  The judge was impressed with all the texture so I've added a detail shot.

Seeking the Path 17"x23" 2010

Moving from the known to the unknown is can be uncomfortable.  The incomplete kanji meaning "The Way" symbolizes the path I seek when I try to create my art.
