Stillness In Nature- Vibrant Earth, Earth Code: PWDB023Earth
Priced and sold per 1/2 yard. Inspired by her time in Nature, Australian fabric designer Denise Burkitt describes the generation of Stillness in Nature, her latest fabric collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics. "I choose a spot amongst the grey gum trees, pull up and go for a walk. This remote location is on the edge of the Margaret River. Eucalyptus gums, with their knarly trunks and outstretched limbs are shredding thick chalky and smoky salmon coloured bark. They gracefully bend wide over a red and sandy ochre dry-river creek bed. Time on your own brings much reflection. I absorb the surrounds and late afternoon, continual rounds of the sounds of cicadas. I notice a calm come over me in this stillness. My creativity becomes all encompassing. I set up a table and chair outside, find my art paper and paints and gather bits of charcoal -- the remnants of another traveller's camp fire. In my paint palette I squeeze out and mix earthy colours, and paint 'Vibrant Earth,' the first of many that afternoon. I'm most content and at one with nature." 100% cotton, 44/45 in. wide.
