Stitching in Yosemite Valley

Stitching in Yosemite, part 2, invites you to travel through Yosemite Valley with the eyes of a fiber artist. Hope you’ll enjoy this journey. Financial, technical details, the "How-to" are described in part 1, so I won’t repeat them here. Just enjoy the splendor of nature, the reminder of the summer months.


Inspiration Point

"It is easier to feel than to realize or in any way explain, Yosemite grandeur. The magnitudes of the rocks and trees and streams are do delicately harmonized, they are mostly hidden. ~ John Muir

"The quality of place, the reaction to immediate contact with earth and growing things that have a fugal relationship with mountains and sky, is essential to the integrity of our existence on this planet." ~ Ansel Adams

"Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions. Ask yourself, "Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream?’" ~ Ansel Adams


All pieces are based on my own photography, printed on Sateen, then stitched.
