More art quilts

After the success of my joint art show at the local gallery (most successful show EVER at that wee gallery, in terms of visitors and sales - yowza) I cannot seem to stop. Which I think is a good thing. A "real" artist told me after the show, to keep making art, for the joy of doing it, not necessarily for an upcoming show. However, I work best with structure and timelines. Hence, I am making some pieces for the upcoming final show of the season at the Arts Denman Summer Gallery. It is called Sustainable Feast, and is part of the 2013 Summer Sustainability Festival.

"It All Comes From the Sun" wall hanging.
