The purpose of this blog is share with others the processes involved in my favorite form of creativity- silk art quilts. The creative process itself is a fascinating thing. I am constantly amazed by it- both its simplicity and its complexity.

I feel strongly that I am a better person since I truly started following my dream. Because of collectors--those who actually buy original art-- I am able to live my dream. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You can see more of my work at my website http://www.rebelquilter.com/.

Solo Exhibition part II

We are taking up where we left off on the previous post. If you want to see it from the beginning see previous post first. As you come around the corner from the long wall you will see "Yikes! Stripes" and "Spots, Dots, Speckles & Freckles". Take note of the purple columns that bring out an amazing amount of purple in my work.
Bypassing the doors that lead to the art department, the next piece is "Sky West".

Then my absolute favorite "Listening for the Silence"-- which we are doing right now-- awaiting the beginning of the snowfall and the cessation of sleet and ice.

Turn the corner again, going clockwise On the left is "Fowl Fantasy III", a runner, then "Neon Cha Cha" and another runner. "Neon Cha Cha" is placed in front of a window and the back can be viewed from the atrium. As with many of my pieces-- the backs have a lot going on.

Which now brings us "Reconcilable Differences."
You have now taken the tour. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Please feel free to leave your comments.

What an absolutely stunning show, Susan! How wonderful to see so much of your work in one venue - positively breathtaking. Wish I could be there to see it in person, but the virtual show is a real treat.

Susan - The show is outstanding! And I have to agree with you that "Listening for the Silence" may be the best of the best. Can't wait to see the show.

Love your silk fabric quilts with the circles and the variety you came up using the same basic design. My latest design in my sketchbook is using that same theme-hope it gets into fabric someday soon.

Congratulations on a beautiful show - both the work, and the presentation are wonderful. I love the Listening for the Silence as well.
