It is always fun to see how 2 artists handle a similar subject in their work. Here are two photos I took at the Quilt Festival in Houston... with a motorcycle theme.
On the left is Linda Anderson's piece: It is a tribute to her husband's dream of riding Route 66 on his motorcycle.
On the right is Tonya Littmann's piece: It is essentially a self-portrait, with her favorite motorcycle.
Linda's piece uses a light background that is densely quilted with lots of detail.
Tonya's portrait has a hand-painted stripe background.
Both use high contrast to create an eye-popping composition, but in totally different ways. Both use a "posterized" version of an image, to translate a photo to a collage of appliqued pieces.
We have our first few videos up from Houston! Watch for several videos to be posted here in the next week.
I'll be writing to you from Churchill in Canada on Saturday. The polar bears have gathered outside Churchill and are waiting for the ice to freeze.
Weds night I'll be meeting with the Manitoba Prairie Quilters in Winnipeg, and admiring the raffle quilt they made from eQuilter fabrics!
