The View at Viewpoints Gallery Maui

I managed to get over to Viewpoints Gallery to take a picture of Honu before the end of the show.

I've had a number of people say that they thought it was a painting, then they got up close and realized it was fabric!

The painting of the hula dancer on the right is a good compliment to the quilt; they are even facing each other.

Here is a closeup of the grouping with beautiful wood bowls, the painting and a lovely lamp which is also wood.

The gallery opening was quite nice. As I was standing in the courtyard outside the gallery watching the hula dancer I got the inspiration for a new hula dancer quilt. She was dancing under a coral tree which had a similar female shape. I'm going to have to get some pictures taken of the tree and do some sketching to see what I can come up with as far as a design goes.

In the meantime, I've got to get back to the agapanthus quilt!

Honu is beautiful wherever he is, but that is a great gallery. I would have loved to see that show!
