Three Leaves (detail)
This is a companion piece to Fading Glory, also gelatin plate prints of hosta leaves. This piece is larger, 57"x42", but is also a whole cloth, at least the background. As I made each print on this piece and then removed the fabric, there was still paint on the gelatin plate. I used this remaining paint to do the images on Three Leaves. The appliqued yellow flower is an image of a dying coneflower, greatly enlarged. The lines were drawn with an airpen, then quilted. The back of this piece is pretty cool because I rubbed paint over where the coneflower quilting is, which almost makes this a two-sided quilt.

This piece is also away at a show being held at the Muse Gallery in Longmont, Colorado.
And the show at the Torpedo Factory opens this week. This is the show that I had to quickly substitute another piece because I forgot I sold the one that was supposed to be in the show. Happy New Year!
