Crazy Quilt #1

Crazy Quilt #1


This still life is crammed with interesting objects that I have collected. The main feature is the flared emerald-green vase and the crazy quilt, which I sewed with many of my fabric scraps. It is a one-of-a-kind quilt!  Also in this setup are square mirror tiles, apples, and a round ruby vase. It was most difficult to paint the quilt and the curving pattern of the flared vase. Drawing the design structure first is another love of mine.  This piece is a continuation of my interest in still lifes focusing on glassware. I love the transparency of the glass and the relationship of the elements and their colors.
