This is the promotional poster or card for the show.
If you ever get a chance to attend this show, you really should. It is a very spiritual experience.

Here you can see the progression of the bleeding heart from beginning time in the sun, to pre rinse to final print after rinsing.

"Seasons of My Garden" is headed to the AQS Paducah show in April. It features 29 of my wet cyanotype prints and was featured in "The Power of Women" exhibit last fall at Houston IQF.

As part of the show, there is an exhibit which is open to anyone who wants to contribute, The most recent exhibit was postcards. This year the exhibit is "eyes". The quilt can be constructed any way.....the only requirement being it must be 5x23. It was a challenge for sure.
This is my final piece.
I started with an actual photo of my eyes...

Every year I vow to do better on my blog....which should tell you how the last year ended. I’m quilting.....a lot....but I can’t show any, or won’t show any, because they are all for challenges right now and we all prefer not to divulge ahead of time. My guild challenge reveal is in two weeks and the theme is "Flora and Fauna". I have two pieces for that, My ArtCGirlz group is doing a "whisper" challenge. This is based on the idea of the gossip game. We will make a 9x12 piece which will be passed to the next person in our group, They will make a 9x12 piece based on what they see, in the entire quilt or any one aspect of it. This will rotate around the group with each person only seeing the one done before them....and no one sees their original piece until the end. At the end we will reveal all 8 pieces to see how "gossip" changed the initial piece. I can’t wait, it sounds like fun.
Meanwhile I’m still photographing and guess I should change my intro bio to this blog to include my new passion,
A couple of photographs for you to enjoy, These are both of the same lighted ornament that hung outside my house this year. One has a snowy overlay and one shows bokeh.....the abstract lighting created by an out of focus background. Enjoy!

I went to a Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square near Philadelphia, PA for the Thanksgiving holiday. It was record cold and we spent much of our time in the conservatory whic was amazingly decorated for the holiday! But we also did some night time light tours. Here are some of my favorites.
In front of one of the beautifully decorated trees in the conservatory.
This glass tree was so beautiful as was the big main tree in the conservatory.
And some outsides views!
