|Dreaming of Georgia O'Keeffe in Fabric|
Anyway, I don't remember now if it was before or after we got home from Florida but I wasn't happy with my workmanship so I redid the entire piece (yes, I still have my first piece!). Hence, it's taken me quite sometime to finish this piece. I think it's one of the longest pieces I've worked on...but I didn't work on it for several months at a time so guess that accounts for part of the time. It measures 16" X 20" and it's for our Masters exhibit the Aussome Fiber group I belong to has ongoing. Our next artist is Peter Max! That should be a hoot...but the nice part of this exhibit is you don't have to do a particular artist. If fact, you don't have to do any if you don't want to!
For my George piece, I used an actual stained glass piece by Valerie Keenen. Valerie did a beautiful stained glass piece titled 'Dreaming of Georgia O'Keeffe' which you can see here. I emailed Valerie and asked if I could use her stained glass piece and replicate it for our exhibit. Valerie graciously gave me permission and I'm really excited for Valerie to see my finished piece. Gee...I wonder if she has any piece she's done of Peter Max!
