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.

This is my last piece for 2013 showing one of the men that live on the street in Jaipur. He seemed to have an amazing stateliness about him despite his situation. I loved the way his night blanket folded and draped around him. He has been painted onto Lutrador and then applied to the background fabric which is one of Heidi Stolle Weber's fabulous hand dyes.
Looking forward to next year's challenges!


  1. The combination of the turquoise blue and brownish purple colour are really stunning Pat, the way you have captured the drape of his blanket is very effective. What make of fabric paint did you use to get such a good match with the background dye?

  2. Of course, I LOVE Heide's fabric and here the colour is wonderful. The drape is so realistic and he looks as though he has been standing for centuries. You must give each of your quilts a title, Pat for when I send the info to Monique. They will look beautiful all together. Elaine.
