The Art of the Flag

Heartland Quilters a Green Country OK group gave itself a patriotic challenge. Quilters were given the same patriotic quilt panel, & told to create a unique quilt. Here are some of the results.

Celebrate the RED, WHITE, & BLUE

I like the way to stars showcase the panel.

Catch a falling star.

These quilts are on display at the Bartlesville Community Center,
Lyons Gallery.
Join the group for the reception on November 15, 4-7pm.

These quilts will be given to veterans.

Sunflower + Sunflower

Van Gogh Sunflowers, there everywhere. I snapped this one in a gallery this summer.

A real sunflower, and from my "garden". I have a small spot in the backyard that always makes me wonder: what should I try to grow this year. Well the sunflower won & did it grow! With a tape measure it was actually 15" across, and it won the Grand Champion prize at the county fair.

Look at this !

Where was I in August? Well, I'm glad you asked. I was in Texas. And look what I found. This work inspired by van Gogh's Starry Night.

Starry Night Chair

A friend & I were driving through Independence, KS. yesterday and stopped at the Art Center there. This wonderful Vincent van Gogh inspired chair greeted us. I love how the fabric was used.

You can find van Gogh even in Kansas.

Paseo Print Show

On view now at the Paseo Print Show through July.

I am so thankful for this show. Printmaking is a lost art. The old masters were skilled printmakers, proficient in many forms. Maybe I should write some posts on the types of printing to inform today's public.

I have been working almost exclusively in printmaking for the last six years, and specifically Clayprinting. I wish this pic would show off all the wonderful texture in this print.
