This past November I went to Tahoe, California, for an event called Art Quilt Tahoe. My friends Linda and Carol were going and invited me to ride with them. It took us two days to get there. It’s always fun going on a road trip with friends, and these two were certainly no exception. We were right on the lake and every room had an amazing view of the lake and mountains and trees and the sunset. It was breathtaking.
I took a class with an amazing artist named Jane Dunnewold. The class was Direct Botanical Printing. Botanical printing was combined with surface design techniques consisting of colored art papers, gel medium, fiber reactive dyes, and gold leaf color creating pattern that can’t be achieved any other way. The results were beautiful and distinctive, and the process is definitely addictive! These are just a few of the prints I made.
