Stitching along Tioga Road in Yosemite
This summer 2018, we entered Yosemite from the East and had a wonderful slow drive along CA-120 with many stops to walk and sit and enjoy the majestic nature. After the trip, some of my photographs were printed on sateen, then I stitched them by hand and machine, and finally stretched them onto wooden stretcher bars so thatchy are ready to be hung on your wall.
Many of them are currently on display in the Camelot Gallery, 225 Broad St., Nevada City, CA 95959 Tel: +1.530.265-4682. The introductory retail price is based on $1 per square inch, which means a 10x14” stitched image or art quilt = $140; the small 8x8” squares are $64.
Tioga Lake - Words from Ansel Adams come to mind: “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
The Rock of Lembert Dome - This reminds me of Lewis Carroll: “ What makes the sky such a darling blue? … It is love.”
