Natural Progression, © 2009, 37½ x 24, Sold

As part of a unique exhibit, I was paired with poet Marcia Denius for what was designed to be a very loose collaboration.  As a result of this pairing, we decided to use the word transition as a springboard for new work.  I was stumped for an idea, until I was picking Black Eyed Susans. (Only the perfect blossoms, of course.)  While doing so, I noticed that the tattered flowers were also interesting.  Finally, I spotted the seed heads and then it hit me:  transition was right in front of me.

Cotton fabrics, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, water soluble wax pastels, oil pastels, marker.  Raw edge collage and machine stitching.
