Lowell, MA

I decided to add a fourth day to my art journey. I had a quilt juried into the Brush Gallery in Lowell. MA and really wanted to go to the opening. I couldn't find any takers so I went alone, three hours up and three hours back. It wasn't too bad; I have a good car, it was a nice day and I have my trusty GPS, which helped me navigate the confusing Lowell Connector. I also went to the opening at the Whistler House Gallery, where I had a quilt last year. Somehow, I missed the call to entry this year. I'll try not to let that happen again.

This year the Brush had a theme for the first time, The Sea, so my Ocean Treasures was a good fit. The quilt extends up out of the top of the picture. There is pale blue sky above that deep blue horizon line. I quilted lots of critters into it, fish, sharks, whales in the water and shells, crabs, etc. in the sand.
