Where Have I Been?!

"When Night Comes Before Day"
11 x 14"

"Quilt Study no. 1"
8 x 10"

"A Home is More Than a House"
9 x 12"

I haven't posted in a while.
Sometimes 'life maintenance' takes over.
We spent a week painting the kitchen which involved renting a scaffolding, some colorful language and a bit of worry about accidents on my part.  But it is done.
The kitchen hadn't been painted in about 14 years and at our age, we figure we won't be doing it again ourselves!

The above pieces will be in the Textile Art Alliance show at the Beachwood Branch of the Cuyahoga Library.
"Quilt Study no. 1" and "A Home..." are new from my deconstructing of older quilts.
I am trying to eek out as many ideas and ways of working with the deconstructed quilts as I can.
These are works the preceded the two "Anonymous" pieces that I wrote about earlier.

One is more like a painting and the there is still much more attached to the quilt world.
But both investigations got me to the "Anonymous" series.
I am at work on a third piece for that series.
So it is off to the studio for me today!


  1. Thanks, Mary Ann! I couldn't go to the opening because I went to Lancaster to hear Nancy Crow talk about the "Circles" show she curated. But I will get over to see the TAA show next week.

  2. Love these, Clare! They are wonderfully evocative.... So glad to see you back here, though I know life does demand attention sometimes.

  3. Thanks for reading and writing! I appreciate your encouragement.
