An art quilt which brings to mind the phrase, “And Yet She Persisted”.
The image in this art quilt has been in my head for years. This year it just kept coming into my consciousness and wouldn’t go away. The idea of a tree surviving on the edge of a very inhospitable rock is a metaphor for much in life. I wanted to show that this tree had weathered much but had aged well. It is beautiful in it’s rugged and spare state.
The background fabrics are a striped commercial grey batik for the water, a hand dyed cotton for the sky and a dupioni silk sun. The rock is made with a black on black triangle print, some marbled black cotton and over painted with pearlized dark grey paint.
This quilt was on exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival in the special exhibit, Landscape Quilt, in 2018.
This is a Limited Edition Print of the original art quilt printed onto Smooth Fine Art Paper. It is signed and custom matted. The outer dimensions of the mat are 12" x 16"
