I am a member of a new fiber art group, Fiber Art Alliance, and it promises to be a great group! The members are all fiber artists, but many are also mixed media artists, and their artwork represents a wide array of visions and techniques.
Our first exhibition is "Natural Lines" and features artwork that is inspired by the lines in nature. Each artist will create 3 pieces this year for this exhibition, and the first set of work is posted on our website now.
This piece is one of my newest works and is included in "Natural Lines". It is the first piece in a series of 3 pieces that are in remembrance of my Dad. Over the years, we took a lot of walks along the beach, picking up shells and stones, and we spent a lot of time sailing on the Chesapeake Bay in a wooden sailboat.
This is a detail photo that shows the lettering at the top and the painted and stitched beach fence that runs through the middle of each piece. The lettering in each of the 3 pieces tells part of a story, about my time spent on the beach with my Dad. These are some of my most personal work, and I am thrilled with the final results.
