"A zebra in Central Park?"
Doctors in training are often told "when you hear hoofbeats in Central Park you should look for a horse not a zebra" but I would like to think that sometimes it is a zebra that's running wild in the park…
If you were to meet me maybe you would think "horse" but I hope that pretty soon you would realize that appearances are deceptive and there is a wild zebra inside that staid grey haired exterior… and a fuschia pink one at that!
After drawing a zebra head I chose to get up close and personal with just a small portion of its face. Using fabrics I dyed myself I fused the light pieces to the dark background, added shadows of navy blue tulle and then quilted a free hand design of fern like feathers to add further dimension and texture. The quilt is finished with a single fold binding.
It was a lot of fun working through my initials thoughts on the theme and putting them down as a finished art work. I hope you like it!
