Judy Villett, Artist, Vista #18: Protected
12" x 12", Cotton, Peltex, paint & stretched canvas, CAN$350.00 - Available for Sale
Moody autumn sky watches over a little tree in the clearing. The forest stands as protection from the giants peering down. Is this forest protected? Are the people inside the high-rises protected? Evening lights glittering from the hard surfaces, hand appliqued behind the fused forest. Machine free-motion quilting emphasizes and extends the organic shapes of the trees. Thread colours are carefully chosen to blend with the commercial prints. The quilted artwork is firmly attached and handstitched over the stabilizer and tacked to stretched canvas.
