2018 • 11″ x 14″
This is a whole cloth cotton quilt and measures 11″ x 14″. The blue-gray background was created using fabric paint, rocks as a resist and set outside in the sun. When that was dry, I added the bronze metallic paint and placed a Styrofoam cut out of the bear on the wet fabric to preserve the brilliance of the metallic paint underneath the Styrofoam and just let the rest of the bronze paint do whatever it wanted to. Kokopelli and the Raven were painted later using metallic paint and a stencil created from freezer paper. I quilted it sparingly because I didn’t want the stitching to compete with the movement of the paint.
