Black & White State of Maine
One of My Favorite Subjects
It's fitting that the final commission of the summer is my home state. I have now quilled four Maine's - each a little different. This particular piece is a huge 11 x 14 and is made with 1/4" paper. It's hard to believe but this piece took almost 200 - TWO HUNDRED! - black strips. Wow! Normally I don't count strips when I'm working on a project but this one stood out to me as I had two full packs of black when I started and just a few strips left when I was done. I used my Graphic White cardstock strips for the river and lake details. I wanted the end result to look more "sketched" than anything and varying the shapes and styles in the rivers accomplished this nicely.
Commissions will resume in October. So if you would like your very own Maine wall art or possibly even another state - use my contact form to ensure a slot once my books re-open for the holiday rush!
