Catherine is thinking “green” and “what you see is what you get”. My quilts reflect my surroundings is a phrase that I use often due to the fact that my photo images of local scenes are used in my art. Like these images that are in one of my 2014 pieces titled “Balancing Acts”.
But more importantly I have to think that the color in the fabrics that I use in my hand-stitched art are influenced by what I “see” around me .
Shown above, this view of our hillside is reflected in my work – shown below.

So what do you see and are you ready to see a green “Spring”? I think I am.
