New Project Started

 

Several years ago I created some designs on silk for a textile designer. Some of my designs were sold, but I have a pile of the unsolds sitting on a shelf, waiting to be transformed into something else. Every now and then I take them down and look through them to see if any ideas jump out at me.  This is one of my favorites - I love the rich purples and blues and organic lines. What happens is, I stare the piece down until it finally speaks to me! I was thinking this could be water, but it said to me, "After Midnight", so I guess it wants to be the night sky! I'm thinking some machine and hand quilting, addition of a moon and stars.... we'll see what develops....
