Art Attack – just for fun

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

‘Cherry Bomb’ brightened up my corner of the TLCA’s Art Attack show.  I photographed and then painted our ’54 Chevy on silk to remember the amazing burst of color from the poppies blooming in the front yard sometime in the early 90’s.

It took a while to decide how to quilt such large fields of just one color.  I chose flames for the red truck, gears in the background, and–my favorite–miller moths on the windows.  The quilt is small enough to hang on a door, but big enough to bring spring into the house.

Art Attack is a multi-media show without a defined theme.   I was happy to find Cherry Bomb hanging next to a mosaic of a Corvette!
