Abandoned on Carrizo Plain 33" h x 41" w 2011

Last spring my husband and I spent a day at Carrizo Plain National Monument, which is located west of Bakersfield, California. We discovered carpets of yellow and purple wildflowers and two old truck shells rusting in dignity together. Then I took a class from Katie Pasquini-Masopust to learn how to create an abstract composition from a photograph.  Voila!  This quilt along with my "Points of Light" and "Reserved for Tony Graffiti" will be displayed in a California Fiber Artists show at the Bakersfield Museum of Art from March 24 - May 31, 2011.
