– In a private collection –
Since I normally prefer to work realistically, this was an attempt at an abstract quilt, based on the colors of the winter songbirds that frequent our feeders. I thought it would be interesting to paint a fairly wild abstract piece of fabric using the colors found in blue jays, titmice, chickadees, cardinals, doves, sparrows, woodpeckers, and juncos, to name a few. It would be fun to create an entire series of songbird quilts.
