I went back through the quilts on your website. Under the Silken Moon is my absolute favorite. Moon imagery is one of my favorites .
I also love your colors and mystery in Midnight Rain in the Urban Series. And the movement of color is spectacular in Sunstorm and Desert Sky. I definitely want a vertical orientation and love long skinny pieces. I don't have a specific favorite color but love high contrast, dark and murky, earthy. My husband dives so I have quite a bit of marine art around with lots of blues/greens.
|Under A Silken Moon|
So I looked at her choices and saw that three out of the four are horizontal formats, not long and skinny. Hmmm. After a few back and forth emails, we settled on a cropped version of Under A Silken Moon, horizontal, at 18x13" in mostly silks, which will be quite different from the original cotton version.
I still have the original drawing of the piece, so I am halfway there! I am excited to start pulling silks to see how the color scheme will change for the new work.
While doing my emails this morning, Tony crawled between my legs and went to sleep. I snuck out my camera and snapped this view, and then he woke up and turned around to see what made that sound. Such a good little cuddler.
