"Heron Reflected" is my entry to the 2017 SAQA Benefit Auction.
Artist statement: In 2015, while walking along the Fraser River, I spotted a Great Blue Heron perched on a tangle of tree roots. I was struck by the almost perfect reflection of the Heron in the very still water, and thought it would make a great subject for a quilt. My photo was very gray, so I added color with photo-editing software. I printed the photo on fabric and added machine quilting. The edges are faced.
