GOLDEN TRILOGY



When I travelled to New Zealand over Christmas I took with me a whole stack of yellow fabrics and decided to work on my "yellow" piece whilst I was there.  I decided to do a variation on a sunflower and after doing the first one I enjoyed that so much so proceeded to do another and that led to a third variation on a theme.  Instead of having three variations separately I then thought it might be a good idea to join them altogether and make a frieze, so this evolved, and as I liked them all and instead of choosing one of them I am putting up the whole piece as I couldn't decide which one I liked the best, so instead of putting up three separate pieces I am giving you all the whole frieze, and as it is the last colour in this series I thought it might be fun just to do it this way.




I will give you the artists challenge in the next day or so.  As my computer has developed a glitch Hilary has very kindly offered to put this up for me so hopefully I can get things sorted out with my computer in the next day or so.

  1. What a great way to finish the series, Patricia - with a bouquet of sunflowers! I love the way you have explored the different styles and techniques - a wonderful series. If you feel inclined do this more often - I often wish I had the time to work in series.

  2. How nice, as Hilary says, to see a series. Interesting to see how the different finishing techniques change the final image. And I love all three, and hope you loved NZ as much as we did.

  3. Your colour palette is not unlike mine, Patricia. Your unique treatment for each of the flower centres adds interest, and to me, the swirl of your background quilting suggests a gentle breeze.

  4. I understand why you didn't chose one, they are all lovely. Nice tribute to your vacation and the end of our series.

  5. Lots of movement in these sunflowers Patricia, and lots to look at in the detail too. Hope your computer problems are soon resolved.

  6. What a great way to play with a variety of techniques - I especially like your flower centres. And I like the windy look of the petals - and the quilting. Lovely.

  7. Great idea to do a triptych Patricia. Just love all the detail in the quilting and in your seed heads.

  8. No wonder it was hard to choose, though I think the one on the left is my favourite, they are all lovely. I like the way that they have all been treated differently and the movement in the petals.
