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!

What an impact your piece makes in that gallery setting. Truly wonderful!

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

Looks like a great show, and congrats on the sale! I loved that nancy crow book, got it for Christmas. Have a great weekend!
