Passing Through Time
As the blue hour of the evening casts its light over the garden, the Echinacea flower seemingly glows in the blue. Its wonderous nectar attracts a passing Peacock butterfly who uses this time to get the last feed before it settles in for the night. The underneath of the Echinacea leaf will make the perfect shelter for a peaceful night.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the butterfly, flowers and leaves were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the delicate wings of the butterfly to the soft petals. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
