We wanted a privacy screen in front of the large french doors at the front of our house, so Roy made one and I added the fabric panels! We really do well together! The best part is that the panels are on small curtain rods top and bottom so they can be changed out easily. Seasonal motifs, or plain white, or wonderful large graphics are all possibilities. Yea us!

This is the lily project I promised you. It is a fabric wall art piece that contains a Chinese proverb I really like. In addition, it has several large tiger lilies on it, my favorite flower. It measures 23 X 26 inches. I created the piece with the intention of entering it for consideration in the 11th Annual Lily Festival Juried Art Show in the Stonewall Gallery at the Campbell Pottery Store. I hope it is accepted! The only criteria is that the artwork contain lilies. I wonder if it might just be too "me" to hang beside traditional framed and matted oil paintings. I guess we shall see! Regardless, I really enjoyed making it and discovered that I LOVE putting oil pastel colors over basic printed cotton fabric. That is how I made the lilies.
Can you read the proverb correctly? (you can click on the image to make it larger)
The juried part of the show takes place in late June. I will let you know how it goes!
