This is a detail shot of a piece I just finished for an exhibit. I screened the first layer using torn newspaper and black paint but the black was too dark so I rinsed it out till it was gray. The gray & white fabric has been sitting around for months and last night, I knew what I needed to do with it. The trees are a screen I made from a picture I took last year in Bruges, and the layer of handwriting that seems to haunt my work, found its way onto the cloth as another layer. I cannot believe how quickly this piece came together. I quilted it in about 5 minutes, without thinking about it. This is unusual for me -- I normally agonize over every stitch. I should probably have been a printmaker but I just can't resist the feel of the cloth.
