Winter Forest is a fabric art collage, designed from a photo I took on a ski trip to Vail, CO. After a nice night of fresh powder. The sky began to brighten as the clouds cleared off.
I used a fused applique method with cotton fabrics, satin stitched with variegated color embroidery threads, thread-painted with cotton and rayon embroidery threads.
The border is raw silk in a pale icy blue, with extra batting and tucking to create a puffy and textured sense of fresh drifts. Batting is organic cotton. Mounted on a stretched canvas frame, wired for hanging.
This piece was featured at the Slater Memorial Museum, Norwich, CT.
