Art Plus Gallery has been cooperating with Saylor House, an interior design company in Wyomissing for a year now, to display works of the artist-members of Art Plus Gallery (of which I am one.)

I went to pick up my piece, Stone House in the Valley, to take it to it’s next show location, Studio B in Boyertown. The show there opens this Friday, Oct 21, entitled Til Death Do Us Art 2016.

Had to share, and give thanks!

We enjoy watching our Goldfinches all summer long. They grab onto a long flower stem in our wildflower meadow and swing back and forth, like in their own private amusement park. As autumn approaches, they lose their bright yellow coloring. It takes energy to maintain that color for breeding season.

It’s like when you come home and put on your comfortable clothes!

A while ago my husband, Jay Ressler, who is also an artist, made a beautiful photographic composition called The Sunflower King. The finch sits grandly atop a bent and gnarly sunflower, well past its prime. In the background are layered love letters from Henry VII to Anne Boleyn, and another texture layer.

I decided to make an art quilt inspired by The Sunflower King. Actually I made two.

The largest one is called Summer’s End, 25.25 x 19.5”

The smaller is called My Little Finch, and is 12.5 x 10”

Here they all are.
