SAQA Auction Part 3

"Midsummer Moon Dance" by Mary Vinovskis is my most recent purchase in the SAQA on-line auction of 12" x 12" pieces.

Here is what Mary shares about her piece: "I'm just starting to make art quilts. In this little piece I wanted to use unusual (for me anyway) fabrics to create my imaginary garden scene. I pictured an adobe wall with some sky above it, strong shadows on it and plants in front of it. At the same time I was focusing on the composition: trying to balance color placement, value, etc. The butterflies were the only way I could see to get some blue into the center of the design. The small scale was also a challenge, especially in deciding how to finish the edge -- my usual 1/4 inch binding cut off too much of the picture so I tried my first couched yarn finish."

I am thrilled with my newest piece.
