Uniquely Spotsylvania

 This piece is part of the Uniquely Spotsylvania show that is currently at the Salem Church Library. It is titled Spotsylvania 22553 -- one of the Spotsylvania zip codes.

I spent a fun day with my daughter shooting photos of some of my favorite weathered and worn places in the area. Then, I printed the photos on the fabric, and incorporated them into the assemblage which also includes zinc stencils, a vintage level and an old spark plug. The quilt remnant is from a quilt that was sewn in 1874.
I was delighted that this piece was awarded first place in the mixed media category.
After we left the Uniquely Spotsylvania reception, we went outside to find that Mother Nature was putting on her own art show. I don't think I've ever seen these cloud formations before.
   In jewelry land, I have been combining lots of my favorite things: gears, keys, buttons, filigree and ICE resin. This series includes pendants and earrings and is currently available at LibertyTown.
