Call of the Blue Hills is a handwoven tapestry.
55″ x 44″ wide
I have always been attracted to watercolor because of the way that pigment moves across the wet paper and saturates some parts and not the other. In this piece I am trying to capture the same subtle, fluid movements with the tonal shifts of color within the shapes.
I frequently walk the Headlands to enjoy the ocean views as well as the many unique geologic and biotic features of the area.
In this tapestry I wanted to consider the hills from which I draw great inspiration. By using a watercolor interpretation, I am able to reflect the way that water, in its elusive forms of ocean, fog, rain, and (hopefully flowing) creeks, is necessary to support the unique features that is so much a part of this region.
