Purple Sunset


Size: 22″ x 17″


Purple! That was the Fast Friday Fabric Challenge that inspired this piece. A friend had a photo of a seaside sunset which caught my eye, and I set out to try to recreate that scene.

I rearranged elements a bit, and put the sailboat closer to center rather enlarged — which then meant that I needed to put in a larger building than the little one I had inserted. Then the tree at left didn’t feel right; it got overlaid with a larger tree with just a bit of outlining. The yellow part of the sunset was then overlaid with just a bit of Angelina(r) fiber, and it was done! I took it the evening after I finished it to the meeting of the Framingham Artists Guild, where it won the “Art of the Month” award!
