Do you want some “Eye Candy” to get you in the summer frame of mind? Check out SAQA’s latest online gallery “Images of Summer” for the month of June: http://www.saqa.com/gallery-mini.php?ID=129
curated by Cindy Grisdella www.cindygrisdela.com
My piece Backyard Quail is one of the images featured. Slide show will take you through the images, each one a slice of what summer means. In the lower left column, you can read a statement for each of the images. This piece was created as an auction item for the SAQA Santa Fe Conference this past April.
I have included my photo inspiration for my digital iPad drawing that I then printed onto fabric and stitched. My backyard bird feeder is a major neighborhood attraction: from quail to rabbits to squirrels and of course many, many birds. All are welcome and all are subjects for my waiting camera (and future art quilt inspirations!) I am a wildlife paparazzi!!
