Ann Turley – Horizon

New Growth

Recently I drove through the central section of California, where a large majority of our crops are grown. It was late April when the growers were prepping their fields for the next rotation of crops. New sprouts were beginning to appear, new crops would soon make their presence known. In the far distance along the horizon line, I could see the large trees that marked the location of the farmers’ living quarters. The sky was bright and clear, the air clean and sweet. The scene spoke to me of the great expanse of land used to produce our food.

Detail view:

  1. Dreaming rural California. Well done.

    Simple and very effective, good use of fabrics and I like the way that you constructed tree.

  3. Your piece looks like close up of the window view in mine 🙂 Love the poetry of the land of food.

  4. Simplicity and strength of lines, this is how I would describe your piece.

  5. Your strong design lines and good fabric choices give a great feeling of open fields in full production.

  6. A very effective way to honor the farmers who take care of our food supply.

  7. Love the simplicity of your design. “Less is more” Very clever way of constructing the trees.

  8. Your use of clean lines and choice of fabrics effectively creates the open, sunny, fruitful California fields.

    I love farmland, it reminds me of quilts and your quilt reminds me of farmland. Beautiful!

    I like the lines of your piece and the way that these define the fields and really do set a horizon. This truly represents farmland, and the way that you have created your tree is wonderful and adds interest to the piece.

  12. Simple, calming, serene. What a pleasing scene. Nice work!
