Other Side of the Forest

Other Side of the Forest

30" x 38" ©2005

I step outside my door, go around the block and there is the entrance to a maintained path through a forest, leading to a wooden bridge over a stream. It can be entered from either this entrance or the entrance/exit at the other end. Both give me different views of the forest with its huge trees, many shrubs, weeds, internal paths, and undergrowth. I document this small bit of nature, as I have noticed that with the years, and the growth in the community around me, more and more people and animals are using these paths. I am wondering what the shape of things to come will be. Stamped and painted fabric, tulle, pellon, machine lace. machine pieced, embroidered and quilted
