Since much of my time is spent looking at my photographs and playing with various digital alterations, I often wish I could show those with the finished quilted cloth artwork. I like to see the evolution from photograph of a detail of the real world to digital alteration to print on cloth to stitched print on cloth.
Photographing the reflections of aspen tree trunks on a pond resulted in some interesting images with the surrounding shrubbery transformed by the ripples into odd abstracted rectangles of color.
Playing with various color gradations in Photoshop Elements I came up with many color variations of this one photo design.
Stitching allows me to emphasize certain things in the print—in this case the rectangularity of those background details and making the vertical lines of the tree trunks more prominent in the over all designs.
