One day during my Zion residency I wasn't happy with the landscape I had painted while out hiking around. I looked down and suddenly saw the miniature, fractal landscape at my feet. Thus began a series which is now up to 17. I like to try combining them, and together with quilt artist Nancy Cluts, we are making an actual fabric quilt. I also decided to try making a paper quilt, shown below, using non-woven viscose pattern-making paper, which I painted and stiffened with Golden's GAC 400. Effectively a stitched, semi-translucent window mat, this won the Past Presidents' Award at the local EAFA Membership Show.
