Happy Halloween! I chose this quilt to show you this month because I think the purple ghost faces are kind of humorously scary and the bowl is flowing with the abundance of Fall. "Bowl" is part of a series of six art quilts I began in 1987 and finished in 1988, each one an image of a container. This particular vessel, with whimsical animal energy radiating out from the center and becoming little dots and dashes of acrylic paint, expresses the exuberance of the season. I added the purple splotch spirits with mouths and eyes to move toward the viewer in a friendly way. I recently quilted this piece on my longarm machine which added a whole new texture and dimension to it.
