Dreamer quilt, Finished!

Phew! Glad that's done. On to the triptych. I just met with Jeanne the Carpenter and we worked out all of the details for the support. I started the drawings today and will post something soon.

For Karyl

I've posted this drawing before, but this week, Karyl, the man/boat in this piece, died suddenly. I made the drawing because of a story my friend Lois tells about before she met Karyl, she was all sail and no boat, and together they worked just fine. Now, she has lost her boat. Now, she will have to do without the safe "boundaries" of Karyl's boat. Good travels, Karyl.

The Drawing Board (as in back to)

Well, that didn't work....As I posted before, I had high hopes for the litho I did this summer, but it was unsuccessful. The litho gods just weren't smiling upon me, so while I did get a print, it isn't in color, much less pochoir. I'm still going to try pochoir, but I'm going to use a simpler image from an old painting about what a good listener my mom is. It's called Time to Listen and is in the collection at the Kalamazoo Hospice. And, I'm going to do it in photogravure, instead of litho. Time for a break from that.
Anyway, I'm glad to have the opportunity to re-work this image. I've always liked it, but it has some formal issues that I'm looking forward to fixing. As soon as the quilt is finished, I'll start on this drawing.
