This is my newest work. It began with a photo I took in Stowe, Vermont a few years ago. I was walking along a path by the river and looked up to see corn silhouetted against a bright blue sky. The image percolated for a few years until I determined how to present it in fiber.

Each of the visible layers is actually many manipulated layers. The backgrounds were constructed. The colors and textures were built. The maize contrasted, masked and saturated. Finally each of the parts was printed and the entire piece was assembled and quilted. I really like this process.
