Villa Teresa

This small quilt (16" x 21") was inspired by a photo taken by Teresa Rhyne in the south of France.  Teresa is an attorney in her "day job" but among her true loves are books and fine wines.  She and her SO Chris lead "Words and Wine" tours to France once or twice a year.  And she takes wonderful pictures.  Teresa was kind enough to give me permission to use her pix as quilt inspiration. 



This is another of the pieces in my architecture inspired series.  It was inspired by a picture of a courtyard in Sicily.  It is on display at the Pool Art Gallery at Drury University in Springfield, MO as part of the Threads of Memory show presented by Uncommon Threads.

Oh Roberta - these two pieces are quiet lovely - I especially love the use of value to gain the right perspective. This is the kind of work I love up in my house. My Italian mother promised me her Calendar of Italy for inspiration at the end of the year!! Still I better finish my Italian steps piece that's been sitting on my design board for a few months now - sigh!

I love these architectural pieces and the rich colours to make the light and shade. Great!
