It was such a nice day today. Sofia spent the day with me and we tried out the new picnic table by taking our lunch outside. She pronounced the new table "weally nice." I was pleased to see that it already has a little bit of bird poop on it. It is settling right in.
Yesterday I finished the big cone, formally named "Oregon Douglas Fir." This piece is done way ahead of schedule for submitting for the Oregon SAQA show. Once I had the idea I just wanted to do it. I should have measured it, but I have it wrapped up to take to the STASH meeting tomorrow and I don't want to unwrap it, but I think it is about 30 by 36, so the cone itself is probably about 2' high. Definitely larger than life. I really enjoyed the whole process and especially examining each small detail of that cone and then enlarging it. I am now thinking of other things that would be interesting to work on in a magnified version.
I really like this piece, Terry. I am such a fan of your clean design sensibilities, and your masterful command of color and form. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
This piece is fabulous, Terry!!ReplyDelete
Excellent! Simply excellent!ReplyDelete
I wish I could touch it...it is amazing!ReplyDelete
Love it! Love it! Love it!ReplyDelete
Wow that is awesome!ReplyDelete
Did the Mallard leave?
Terry, this is beautiful. As a cone collector (like shells on the beach, I can't walk past a pine/fir cone), this captures the fir cone so well. Love the goose on the roof!ReplyDelete
Terry, this is GORGEOUS!ReplyDelete
Yes, I concur with all above. May I be on the top of the list when you decide to sell it, please. DelReplyDelete
The sky is just right. I admire this little quilt and can almost smell the forest scent.ReplyDelete
This quilt is lovely, Terry. Good work as always.ReplyDelete
It is indeed beautiful! I thought it was a painting until I looked at it closer and found it was a quilt! WOW!! Beautiful work!ReplyDelete
