Just Another Rainy Day

Entry #: TT 1988

Entrant: Lisa st. Marie

Dimensions: 15" x 25"

Materials: Batik cotton, Gütterman® silk-finish cotton thread and Inktense® pencils.

Techniques: Decorative stitches from domestic machine and domestic-machine quilting.

Credits: An interpretation of an original painting, "Another Rainy Day", by artist Nic Squirrell of Great Britain.

Artist’s Statement: When I saw the National Juried Show category, "Textile Translations", I knew I had to turn this, my favourite painting, into a quilt. Using a single piece of indigo batik, Inktense® pencils create the fog, while thread creates the impression of rain and spreading puddles as the raindrops fall.
