New Work

I got out my tubes of acrylic paints and started playing on a couple of canvases. It was fun to work with paint again, not painting fabric but working toward a finished piece.
I did this because I have been working really hard getting other pieces finished...quilts...for the county commission and for my show in May.

this is another painting...still thinking about these

So I have been quilting and finishing off three larger "In the Woods" series.
And another one
and another one
Before I left for Florida I did this silk piece:
Tuesday I had an appointment with the Alameda Arts Commission to show them the first finished piece on the commission. They really liked it. I also took the next piece in that I had just started and had only gotten the applique stitched down.
I have finished the quilting, squared it up, and am ready to put a facing on it.

I have also been really busy with my on line class and will be teaching this Saturday and the next Monday with the East Bay Heritage Quilters in Albany, CA. I will be doing a lecture at their guild meeting on Monday is open to anyone and is in the evening.

The paintings are beautiful, and I absolutely love the "Woods" quilt series. Very inspiring!

Your In The Woods pieces are now my favorites. Right up there with the California Dreaming series. Wonderful. To me those are the pieces that scream "Liz Berg". Just beautiful.

Can't wait to see you again Monday at EBHQ and see all your work in one place, especially the newer pieces. Looking forward to it.
