Mustard on the coastal hills
I have started a new art quilt (12" by 12") of my local landscape. The mustard blooms on our local hills in early spring starting with the western facing hills, followed by the south and finally the east and north. It is a gorgeous display of yellows. (If you don't know the history of the wild mustard read my journal note on my previous post) I wanted to remember this landscape in fabric. This is my first step. One of my earliest watercolor sketchings (below) was my inspiration.
