" Fonte De Sulfer"
29" X 8"
Raw-edged fused applique
Shiva paint stick shading
I was not inspired by this month's photo. The more I looked at it the more I thought of just using the colors within the fountain rather than the scene itself. Then I began thinking of taking closeup
parts of the actual fountain so I began drawing them out. After four drawings were done I really did not like any of them so the idea came to me to group them and the quilt was born.
The fabric was some stone-like fabric I had used before but it did need some shading done to
make it appear three dimensional so I used my shiva paintsticks to add that.
I also chose to use metallic thread for the water dripping out of the two spouts. I continued the
splashing and pouring water through each of the four blocks.
I am not totally excited about this piece but actually was happy to have come up with something this month. It was a difficult month for me personally and it made it more difficult to be creative.
