Mission in Arizona

Mission in Arizona

41" x 43"

In January 2004 I attended a class with Esterita Austin. She is known for her techniques in light and shadows. I was able to create this wallhanging after seeing a picture in a magazine of a mission in Arizona. With her help and suggestions, I was able to accent the light areas and darken the shadows by working with various paints on commercial and hand dyed fabrics. I was pleased with the way it turned out and plan to do much more by using this technique in the future. I would say that this mission was accomplished!
