The Delaplaine Art Center in downtown Frederick is hosting their Annual Juried Exhibit this Spring. I entered my tribute to Stephen King (see March 7th entry), another piece I did of Edgar Allan Poe (which I’ll post later) and this one.
This may look familiar to some of you, and I did draw inspiration once again from my sister’s photograph. This piece is 2′ X 3′ however, and completely quilted, with borders and a fabric backing so it is not meant to be placed in a frame. I am really proud of this piece. The larger size was more difficult to work with (imagine trying to twist and turn a large piece of fabric in your sewing machine) but getting the extra detail out of the piece made it all worth it.
