After completing a large commission over several months and shipping it out. I waited … Were they happy? Did they mount it ok? Was it damaged in transit?
Then on Christmas day I received this from the client, “With the help of our son in law, who is an art installer, we just finished hanging The Old Oak and Friends and it looks fabulous! Thank you so much for all your artistic efforts on this piece. We love it!
I’m so glad!
I have often heard the expression “finding your voice” What does that really mean? For an artist’s who with a strong voice, their artwork is immediately identifiable. It’s like a signature, or a fingerprint. What is my voice? Is it loud? Does it shout or laugh? Perhaps it sings a melody or a dynamic rhythmic beat. Such wide variations in my work.
I love natural subjects, but also abstractions. Enjoy textures and piecing too. What is next?
I have a custom order for Christmas due in December. It’s based on my art quilt “The Old Oak” only bigger and with a few saplings added. I call it “The Old Oak and Friends”
Here are progress pics and some details! I am having a blast.

I especially love those pins!
