After The Storm (2015)

After The Storm

39.5 x 24"

I love this weather phenomenon when the sky is really dark but the sun comes through and lights the landscape to a brilliant chartreuse color. It's been in the back of my mind to make something based on that and this summer I found the perfect fabric for the sky.  I already had the greens and an exhibit in mind. The distant buildings are an actual farm near here that I photographed because I like the wonky way the buildings were placed.

Entirely machine pieced from commercially printed fabrics, and free motion machine quilted using a variety of threads, including metallic for the lightening.
