Size: 17”  x  21½”


This piece began with the white terry cloth which shouted “Snow” despite its floral theme.  It became mountain slopes, with the cloudy blue sky appearing next in the picture.  The slopes needed a couple trees on each side, coming from a fabric with snow-bedecked branches, as well as shrubbery with its dusting of snow.  Then the sky called out for at least one bird, and ended up with five, cut out of black fabric fused onto the scene.  The final addition was a winter sun, made from Angelina fiber.  This, in its raw form, looks like thin Easter grass, but ironed between paper towels, it fuses into an iridescent kind of fabric. It created a sun on the right, and its rays extend across much of the top.  It also slightly covers a couple of the birds, so they are slightly less identical.  I added stitching to accent the sun’s rays.

My husband suggested Bleak Midwinter as the title, but the piece does not relate to the holidays, and it is not bleak, so Midwinter is descriptive enough!
