Desert Evening

Ever since having lived near Eilat I have wanted to create a red desert evening scene.

When I went to the scrap pile to create this piece I had something very particular in mind. I chose all the reds, russets, burgundys, plums, tans and browns that I could find. Some were patterned, some tie dyed and most were solids.

Next step was to go to my drawer of fabric threads and choose the shades.

it all came together once I began to create textures.

Then chose the top stitching colored thread.

And here it is.

“And when the sun goes down we dance, and more.

Till daybreak.

When the sun comes up.

We dance again. . .”
