The weather was perfect and the Rolling Hills Zoo was a beautiful place for an artist to spend Saturday during their recent Plein Air event. I was inspired, not only by the landscape but also by the sights and sounds of the many animals.
I packed up my sewing machine and my silk fusion supplies and began to make a silk mosaic fish quilt, inspired by the beautiful fish swimming in the pond literally at my feet. Many people stopped by to ask about my art, and I greatly enjoyed visiting and sharing.
I and all of the other participating artists will have several pieces of art (including the ones created on Saturday) on display in the zoo gallery. An artist reception will be Sunday Oct. 2 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.; I look forward to seeing the artwork done by the other talented artist participants!
