Recently I won a Grand Prize in competition against quillers from around the world with this piece “Lighthouse Dream Life”. This epic work captures many of my childhood dreams and memories. My fascination of lighthouses and the dream to live in one; its location on a hill represents “Goose Pond Hill” where I grew up playing with my siblings – especially my seven (7) brothers; the bright colors represent my sister Cherl Fritz’s artistic talent; the irises remind me of my brother Dwight, who still to this day has “Irises” generated from our grandmother and mother’s flower gardens years ago; the Lone Star quilt in yellow & orange, is a replica of my grandmother’s quilt, while the other quilt called “Flower Garden” is a replica of one my mother made. Both hang from the miniature wooden clothesline that I recall was in our backyard, clothes always hanging from it and blowing in the breeze.
The dimensions of the canvas is 18″ x 24″ and framed in an unclaimed wood frame – please note the clothes line post are made with the same unclaimed wood.
All of the paper are strips cut from the Culture Pop line at Little Circles – in my opinion they have the highest quality and I highly recommended for making quilled jewelry and fine art.
Quilling is a paper art form that dates back hundreds of years. It is the art of taking thin strips of paper, of varying widths, and rolling, gluing and shaping into different shapes. You then take these little shapes and glue them onto a surface such as flat canvas sheets or canvas sheets or sturdy paper. Together these little pieces create awesome quilled masterpieces.
