We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Next step

Sorry the photos from the last post seem to be in the wrong order!
I have added some paint to the quilt but now I just want to add a little more paint to the green to reduce the vibrancy as the green stands out too much and I want to get rid of some of the gold. The binding was a swine to do as the wool was so stretchy and i had so little fabric. Lessons learnt!
More work to be done on it before it is finished!


  1. Maybe you can reduce the gold by stamping some grey/black paint over it. It is indeed a bit overwhelming now :-). This can also be done to reduce the bright green.

  2. Hi Gillian,
    Liked your design - really reflected hilly nature of the area where you live - also liked the piece in development as monochromatic with those lovely blues but the overprinting does add more depth to the piece.

  3. I agree with Jean. I like your design and your use of color. The red doorways really lead my eye into the piece. It has been fun to watch this one evolve!
