Artist Statement: A photograph taken of a sunrise over a local lake inspired the series of which Sunrise Abstraction is the fifth piece. The intent was to simplify the sunrise to its essence of sky, sunrise and lake, capturing the drama and releasing the detail.

Size: 45″ x 30″

Materials: All fabric used was hand-dyed by the artist starting with 100% PFD cotton. The various cotton, polyester and nylon threads used in the piece are commercial.

Techniques: Both improvisational and planned piecing was executed by machine. The quilting is predominately free-motion with some areas marked for guidance.
