#59 Solitude: The Watcher

Challenge 59 - Solitude
"The Watcher" is a young brave seeking solitude in an aspen grove.  Perhaps he is on a Vision Quest, or perhaps just observing life around him.  He wants to see and not be seen.

Commercial fabrics were used for the trees and background.  The young brave was painted on Lutrador.

This is not yet quilted.  Quilting will follow the outlines of the trees. Size 14" x 14".  Comments welcome.

I love this piece, and it definitely speaks of solitude. It is so realistic that I feel as if I am in the trees with him. Please post again after you have it quilted.

This is a striking piece definitely showing the solitude of Native American hunters alone in a forest.
