Colors Of Passing Summer

Fiber Wall Hanging

Flowers are in full bloom, but there are signs suggesting that the summer is at it's end: dry seed pods, curling leaves, wilting grasses. Red sunset skies fading into icy purple, predicting a cold night. Hand-dyed cotton batik fabric was used for the background. Lustrous silks were carefully folded to replicate ruffly petals of poppy flowers. Added appliqued and embroidered botanical elements. Accentuated with metallic fabric paint.

Ships rolled, hanging wooden bars coated with clear polyurethane (for preservation purposes) are included to be inserted in the sleeves sewn along the back top and bottom sides, ready to hang.
