If I missed the mark of what it represents, my apologies. Thank you for posting so many photos to give us a real close up look. There is so much to learn by studying your photos. Wow.
    Linda~ you are right on with your interpretation . I'm glad to hear it.

    Wendy- Thanks for your generous offer of help with the art of trapunto.....when I get going you're likely to hear from me many times. It's just so pretty.

    After seeing what others have posted I feel like a preschooler, but here is what I am working on. I have been practicing zen doodles and so I decided to use the leaves on a wallhanging. I have highlighted the zen doodles with gold Lumiere paint. Haven't decided on the border yet, but as I am also practicing New York Beauties, I may do that for a wavy border.

I'm new to "art" quilting, but have been an avid seamstress and quilter for almost 40 years; this is a new endeavor for me and I appreciate all the discussion, sharing and tips here. I've been experimenting with fabric dyeing, trying different embellishments, learning to use Shiva Oil Paintstiks, and anything else I can think of lately. Here's a link to my first Paintstik experiment: Paintstiks on Fabric
    Looking forward to spending more time here!!!
    Welcome and love seeing your gorgeous work. I love both the inspiration and the ideas on how you used the paintsticks. Thanks

    azwendyg------------I felt like it needed some embellishment so I added a bunch of beading, but am not totally happy with that....

    I've been looking at this quilt in minute detail for so long, I don't feel like I have a good sense how it is in respect to overall design/impact anymore...

    Suggestions and comments please???

    Boy do I understand that dilemma! As an author you get so sick of looking at a project you can't see a misspelled word like odg

    I personally agree with you. I think the top could use just a bit of livening. Here are my first thoughts which you may well have experimented with already. On scraps of course-- did you try some smudges of perhaps a metallic paint for the illusion of fluttering leaves here and there? Maybe some very delicate strings of almost invisible beads dancing along the green? Just some ideas......

    Love your technique and your workmanship. Almost makes me weep in frustration for the lack of finesse in my work!

    Watching to see where you go with this...........

    Thanks for the suggestions Suzie. I want do some more experimenting and try out some of your ideas. I just ordered some additional iridescent colors of Paintstiks that should come by the middle of next week. Maybe I can do some random shading on some of the FMQ leaves... I've also thought about adding more crystal seed beads to the tree... We'll see!
