Ghostly Galleon


My latest piece was created for the Fiberart Challenge group. The word was poetic. I took my inspiration from the poem The Highwayman. The line "the moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas," came to mind. The moon has inspired poets, writers and artists for centuries.

I just love how this one just came to life on it's own. I used commercially dyed blue and white fabric. The moon and the snow was done with shiva paintstiks and then I machine quilted it.

This is very beautiful! It has a very haunting mysterious quality about it. It makes me wonder what the person who was looking at the moon was thinking about...
