Artist’s Statement: After the tornadoes of September 2018, news reports showed skies lit up in brilliant yellow and saffron, inspiring this piece, part of a series. Sky colours are blended using a combination of narrow fabric strips, tulle and Angelina, heavily machine-stitched with coordinating threads. Quilting lines represent radiating, crepuscular rays.
