This is the third square of the Tree Map piece. Now I’m going to color shift for the middle three squares.

I got my order of Mistyfuse in just in time yesterday to complete this piece. I’d begun working on another project so as not to waste any time.

I won’t be able to complete the Tree Map for the 30 for 30 art challenge which ends January 30, but I plan to keep posting until it is done. Hate to leave dangling ends! It may not be every day, though, as other work has been piling up this January.

The challenge has indeed caused me to push myself, and I have experimented, as was the intent. I hope the other artists have had the same good experience with this.  Thank you Leslie Saeta for issuing the challenge and keeping up the website.

This is a new piece I call “Ice Cream Day.” It is a portrait of my mother-in-law, who lives with us. Food is a major excitement in her life, and especially Wednesdaysice cream day 26 x 21.5 med and Sundays when it is our custom to eat  ice cream for dessert.

The medium is fabric, paper and found object collage, with free motion machine stitching and hand embroidery for the edges. It is mounted on a linen covered board, and the dimensions are 26 x 21.5″.
