3, 2, 1 And Florida Ice Will Be History

No matter how much I post about the Show online you really have to see it in the amazing venue where the emphasis is on showing ART to really appreciate the work,
Each piece in the show started as white fabric and was ice dyed to achieve these glorious results.
I do realize distance prevents many of you from attending. I am doing my best to share some of the work.

                                    JEWEL BOX
This has a unique coloration and lots of unintentional hidden things for you to see. I hope you enjoy it.
Yes, you only have today, tomorrow and Thursday and then FLORIDA ICE will be Ocala history. It has been an honor to have been selected to show my work here as ART.
Ocala City Hall 110 SE Watula Ave (Corner of Ft King)   M-F 8 am – 5 pm

Is It A Quilt Or A Pillow?

While I was making Olympic quilts I started one that I thought would be a great small wall quilt.
When I put  it on the design wall I realized there was not enough happening to make it an interesting quilt.
That is when I decided it would make a great pillow. I quilted it and stuffed it very full so it stands up on the couch.
Fast forward and I have recently finished quilt pillow number 5. They are all quilted and each different. I call them ART pillows as each was carefully composed and quilted and finished as an expensive custom pillow is.
This is the front of Art pillow 5 before it was made into a pillow.
Here it is after it became a pillow.
These two pillows coordinate well.

7 MORE DAYS To See Florida Ice

Sacred Spirits 43wx89h
Sacred Spirits is another one of my best Ice Tapestries.
Unfortunately if wasn’t in the show as there was a limited amount of space to display my work and this was just too big.
It is a very large – 43 inches wide by 89 inches long.
I included it here so you can see it.
It is quite different than the rest of my work.
I feel the Ocala Cultural Arts curators did a fantastic job selecting work for the show and hanging the show to highlight each work of art.
I hope if you haven’t had time to see the show I hope you have plans to see it before it closes.
