Background for Hydrangea Finished

I have had a little time this week to work in my studio and was able to finish the background for my hydrangea. I still have high-lights and shadows to add the large flower but otherwise the top is finished. Now to the hard part, quilting.









I took a little time this week to make this little 3 x 5 piece in memory of Lisa Quintana. Kathy Loomis posted a gentle reminder on the SAQA Yahoo list that friends of Lisa's were putting together a presentation to give to Lisa's family. I knew about this and had planned to make something but, as often happens, I hadn't gotten to it yet. Yesterday I had a few minutes and decided that I wanted to do this and if I didn't do it now it might not happen.

Many of my readers knew Lisa, if not in person then via the internet. The internet was my only connection to Lisa yet I feel that I can call her my friend. I never posted a question on the Art Digest Yahoo List that Lisa didn't respond to. She was so helpful, talented and a beautiful writer. Lisa lost her battle with breast cancer in October. If you knew her, even just as a friend on the internet, honor her memory with a little piece of art. You can send it to:

  2. I went back and looked at your earlier post of the Hydrangea, what a difference the background makes, the flowers just glow! Wonderful work, are you adding a butterfly or anything to this one?

  3. I love the color shading and combo on your hydrangea. I didn't know Lisa but I think she is creating something great wherever she is .

  5. Marilyn, your hydrangea background is very interesting, but your flower for Lisa is truly beautiful. We who love to create are really bound by common threads, love, beauty and compassion. We are truly blessed. Merry Christmas.
