For this worthy cause, I decided to do a simple composition using a similar palette as the diptych in the show, but added some of my photo images of those “marshmallows” – or hay covered in white plastic. I usually do not alter the color of the image – but prefer to print it out duplicating the sunlight on the subject – which on that day was a wonderful glowing lavender – blue. The piece is hand-quilted in straight lines across it’s surface. – – – With permission, I’m hoping to take some photos of the other “Mini Quilts” and post them on my blog when I return from the Opening this week-end.
