Pancake Fish







Pancake Fish





Pancake Fish is one of fifteen art quilts that I created with different images of imaginary fish.  I have always liked all of those colorful tropical fish that swim around Hawaii.  So I made up some fish of my own.  Each of these quilts began with an 8x10 appliquéd fish around which I added a black border with abundant patterns of acrylic paint brushed onto the surface. The rest of the series are all in private collections.  The materials and techniques are machine appliqué fabric, thread and acrylic paint.
