Blue Mood


I took a photo of my neice sitting on a sand dune. She looked very contemplative. I originally did this quilt in realistic colours, but then was challenged to try redoing it in another colour scheme. This is the result. It changes the mood of the piece entirely. I like this one better than the original.

Valerie, Love this piece. It is interesting that the mood is changed by the color and I agree that it does. I would love to see it closer. But I can't get my computer to zero in. Did you paint her face? What size is the finished piece>

This is just a wonderful piece, and the colors do convey a solemn mood. It would be nice to see the original. Well done!

I think I saw the original through the quiltart list. The color really adds to the mood. I love the simplicity and vastness of her environment. It adds to the feeling of the piece. Did you already quilt it?

This is a wonderful piece which reiterates how beautiful simplicity can be! I think that the face is very detailed and interesting. I would really like to see the quilting on this.
