Summer Glee, June 2003
8.5" x 11"

Once again I am inspired by the surface design techniques offered by Jane Dunnewold. I use Elmer’s gel as a resist and just spontaneously draw on a piece of fabric. After it dries I paint it with Seta color paints. The design emerges in the sink as I remove the glue and looks awesome! I top it off with dots (thanks Laurel Birch!) and some minimal quilting. I love the energy of this piece and how quickly it goes together. It speaks to me of the joy of summer and the many adventures I share with my children now that school is out. It is time for play!
