Day 267 Wrinkle in Water Wisdom
"Wrinkle in Water Wisdom" is a wall hanging that I made for the 2011 Audubon exhibit in Dayton, Ohio. It is 56" tall by 27" across, with hand painted endangered Colorado River Fish (the Lake Chub, the Humpback Chub, the Razorback Sucker, the Pikeminnow, the Rio Grande Sucker, the Suckermouth Minnow, the Plains Minnow, the Northern and Southern Redbelly Daces, and the Bonytail Chub) all represented in this wallhanging. The fish are appliqued, the background quilted, and air bubbles (glass balls) and riverstones (painted rock) and river plants (twine) were added. The background is made from silk/linen, so it has a great watery/shimmery effect with the light.
