So honored to have my work recognized this year at the Driftless Area Art Festival. So many fine artists in one place, it is humbling, unexpected and Amazing!!! to be singled out for an award.
Thank you to State Street Gallery in LaCrosse, WI for sponsoring the Merit Awards.
I believe this was the piece that got the attention. I had it on a dress form, the judge studied pretty well. The following photo of a monarch caterpillar in my back yard is the inspiration. All you have to do is look to nature to see the most beautiful colors The pattern is an 8-Harness Twill that reminded me of 'eyes' in a peacock's tail feathers.
