California Dreamin'

California Dreamin

51" x 51"

My husband and I drove down the California coastline while we were on vacation a few years ago. The views were breathtaking. We stopped quite a few times to take pictures. I decided to make this quilted wallhanging from one of my photographs. The sky, the rocks and the beach were all hand painted along with the little sea gulls. I made the water effect using a commerical fabric along with some paint, and added cheesecloth for the wave and water formation.

This quilted wallhanging was juried and shown in the Husqvarna Viking contest named Art Takes Shape in Houston, Texas in October 2005. At the present time it is touring around the world on a two year tour.
