Pokai Sky

Pokai Sky

21" x 37" ©2006

Moonlight etches cresting waves with luminous green in this tribute to a perfect tropical evening. A sheltered beach at Pokai Bay on the leeward side of Oahu is far from city lights. The Big Dipper hangs upside down, glittering with a few hand stitches added to seven specially placed crystals. Quilted details add to the story. A multitude of five-pointed stars fill the sky. Hidden turtle eggs nestle in the dark sand. Human footprints disappear into the sea. This is a postcard to me as a reminder of a wonderful women's retreat weekend during a year in Hawaii.100% Cotton (Hand dyed and commercial fabrics), tulle, Swarovsky Crystals. Machine pieced and quilted, hand appliquë and embroidery, heat fused crystals
