Water House Road Canvas Mounted Art Quilt

Image Description
"Water Road House"- 12"x12" Art Quilt Mounted on 16"x20"x.75" deep canvas. "Water Road House" is the second piece I have done based on a photo of a very old, falling down house near where I live. This piece was entered in a local art show and received First Prize in the mixed media category. The flowers and trees are fused applique. Many flowers are cut from floral fabrics- appliqued, embroidered, and beaded. Freemotion quilting secures all the tiny pieces as well as adding interest and texture to the piece. The embellished quilt is bound with an ivory yarn, and mounted on a gallery wrapped canvas frame. The canvas the quilt is mounted on was painted with acrylic paint, accented with chalk pastels to bring the scene in the quilt out into the border. Inspiration / Story behind this Product: I began with a photo of the house, the real one is surrounded by tall weeds and brush. I had envisioned it as being surrounded by lush, vibrant flower gardens. I printed the house photo onto cotton fabric, and surrounded it by the lush flower beds that I had imagined, instead of weeds and brush.
