My latest landscape, it is taken from a photo I took of Cimarron Canyon State Park, in northern NM in September '09. It is a combination of fabric painting and applique. It measures 12.5 X 16.

Thank you for your praise. I love doing fabric landscapes. The original photo is at http://www.flickr.com/photos/sayyidadinah/4014831445/in/set-72157622469274385/ I used the center of the photo for the quilt.

But painting fabric is definitely different from paper. I am still trying to find the right resit for my self :)  When I first painted this the sky was the same piece of fabric but the mountain ran into it. I ended up cutting the cliff side off away from the original sky and replacing it with another piece of painted fabric.

I got my start with landscape quilts in a class at Quilt University "Painted Landscapes" with Michele Scott as the teacher.
