The Art Quilt Collection

I just received a copy of this brand new book of art quilts from around the world. I have a couple of pieces from my Reflections, Glass Walls series in it. I think the publisher did a really great job on this book - the images are very clear and large and the book is well designed.

BIrch bark fragments

Fragments of brich bark have been used to cover an old door - I like the differnet colroations and patterns in the fragments and the overall  design of this very wabi-sabi door.

Slatted Blinds

These slatted blinds are moving just enough in a breeze to create their own pattern.

X Marks the Spot

This wonderful line of X's was created by light bouncing off the hangar windows across the tarmac. You could not plan for this to happen.

Sand Hill crane ballet

This crane was so beautiful to watch as it folded and unfolded itself to do some grooming. It was like watching a dancer move.

Sunday, September 5, 2010


While hanging my exhibit up at the Univeristy of Wisconsin Arboretum, two sandlhill cranes made a stop by the window to hang out for awhile. What interesting birds! I was able to get get a close-up of the feathers. A naturalist told me that the brown color is from mud that they put on their feathers. The mud works as camouflage, letting the cranes match the ground color of the area they are living in.
