This collection began as a painting I started two years ago. I often start with a background that I let sit for a while until I decide what I want the finished painting to be. Of course, it rarely ends up looking anything like I originally intended! I love color and texture. I added layer after layer using stencils, spray paints, hand printed papers and inks until I had Garden Bright. The coordinating paintings came much more easily. I tend to paint in the same palette most of the time so everything coordinated nicely. I love that these paintings are being printed on fabric, and I cannot wait to see what quilters will create!
