Many of you might not have seen a lot of Judy’s beautiful work because she wasn’t painting any large canvases lately. I’ve collected some photos of her work to show you – in her memory.
She used ceramics and pottery for inspiration in many of her canvases but the first one shown below is from a crazy quilt square. The original piece on the left and Judy’s adaptation on the right.
She loved Mexican Talavera and used it for pillows, ornaments, and mini stockings.
I already miss her and bouncing ideas off of her when things weren’t going exactly as planned. I haven’t done much stitching over the last week or so but I promised her I would do a pillow from her book on Pre-Columbian textiles. I will start designing that pillow now. It will be black, orange and yellow on black canvas. I’m sure I’ll feel her watching over my shoulder as I stitch the piece. You are missed, Judy……..
