silk setting sun


Hand dyed silk, cut into small fragments and fused to create color gradations. The final measurement of this piece is only 6" x 8". After construction, I am not sure about adding stitching.
Great challenge. Comments welcome.

Lovely job and beautiful colors just right for a sunset over the hills. I think quilting will really finish this off beautifully.

I can feel the heat from sun on my face. Your colors are grand. Your gradations excellent. The bits of yellow really make it all pop.

Very nice use of color and contrast! My eyes are drawn to the beautiful sky area with all of the interesting shapes. The black hills really pop those colors. I would definitely add some quilting to this piece, it will really give it lots of life! Job well done!

Sue, This is a really beautiful piece - so realistic while being somewhat abstract. You have really captured a gorgeous sunset. Congrats. Sandi
