Indian Summer for Yolo County Sunflower Art Show

2nd UPDATE: This piece SOLD after it's tour in the Sunflower Art show!

UPDATE: This piece has won two prizes this summer. First it received a third place in the Miscellaneous category with other quilts of all kinds at the Dixon May Fair, Dixon, CA; and then it won FIRST Place in the Yolo County Sunflower Art Show, Davis Ca. in the amateur adult category up against paintings, drawings, sculptures, mixed media and other textile pieces of art!

My first attempt to re-do an older art quilt and turn it into something very different and exciting. I took Seeds of Hope I, which won a prize at the Juried Art Show in the Vacaville Art Gallery in 2010, and let the flower grow into a sunflower for the Yolo County Sunflower Art Show this May.
I added golden petals, beads and buttons to the heavily felted flower head and fabric paint to change colors from pink to yellow!



All the new additions were done by hand.


Giving it a highly textured appearance!



This quilt can be seen first at the Dixon May Fair, Dixon, CA May 4-8, 2011;




and at the Davis Art Center, Davis, CA June 10-22, 2011.



Indian Summer is for sale for $240, but buyer must wait until after the Sunflower Show to take ownership.




A percentage of the amount will go to help fight mental illness.








Size: 33" X 16" (widest points petal tip to petal tip)
