A Wildflower Tapestry

There are countless talented fiber artists in the world, and I have always admired those who create art in the form of tapestries and quilts. It takes inner vision to see a work of art, and great patience to make it a reality. Many of us have the ideas but fall short on the execution.

On a recent walk in a local park, I photographed this image of the wildflowers that were taking their turn to bloom. Blue-violet was the theme of the week, and went well with the various shades of green and brown in the vicinity. I am always struck by the richness of texture that is displayed in nature.

This scene inspired me to imagine a tapestry project. Yesterday I spent an hour or so walking the aisles of a local craft store, mentally cataloging the available supplies. I noticed the embroidery thread when I was buying some yarn. Then I looked at my photograph today, and remembered the assortment of media available to express this vision. So much variety of texture and color calls out to be captured and celebrated.
