My latest finish is “Reminiscence”. This Quilt Art is based on a section of a photo I took recently down at the Yaroomba rock pools on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. I wasn’t taking a photo of this woman, she was just there in the corner and after a fabulous day exploring the rock pools and discovering sea creatures, we went home and I looked at my photos and discovered her, just sitting there.
She is holding a body board and staring out to sea, probably watching her Grandchildren play. She makes me wonder what she is thinking, is she dreaming of the days when she could go out on a board and fly through the waves?. Is she pondering actually going ahead and doing it regardless?… or has she already been out there on that very board?
I don’t know the answer, but I thought she deserved to be in an Art Quilt. She exudes a sort of peacefulness to me regardless of whether she is regretting her inability to go bodyboarding or not. I think she is happy whatever the situation. She is enjoying the glorious warm sun and the beautiful environment with the children playing around her.
“Reminiscence” is 44 x 35 cm and will be framed in a white frame I think. I like white frames….
