Morning Mist Morning Mist
Linda Anderson   •  La Mesa, California, USA More Info
SOLD Waking to a brisk morning, I walk with a cup of coffee and tour my backyard. The dewdrops that cover so many plants in our garden show like crystals in the sunshine. This is one such close-up of that morning greeting. Just noticing these small moments makes for a peaceful exchange with nature. What a way to start the day!
Infinite Possiblity Infinite Possiblity
Meghan W. Betts   •  Arlington, Virginia, USA More Info
NFSStep. Step. Step. The day falls away. Challenges, noise, and stress retreat. In their place are calm and ease. My passenger points out a cardinal in flight and a squirrel bounding up a tree, common sights translated into things of wonder through his young eyes. In these moments, the concerns of the world retreat and we realize that we are part of a world of infinite ▶

Sandra Champion   •  Battery Point, Tasmania, Australia More Info

Donald in Light Donald in Light
Jennifer Day   •  Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA More Info
NFSDonald has led a life full of twists and turns. He began his adulthood serving his country in the French Indonesian war in 1956 — almost 70 years ago.

I took his photo as he sat in the window of an old barn in New Mexico. The ▶
Morning Walk Morning Walk
Donna Deaver   •  Coeur d`Alene, Idaho, USA More Info
SOLD I have a deep love of the sea. It draws me in an unexplainable way, calling to me when I least expect it. Even though I no longer live by the ocean, I feel that I am home whenever I return. One of my favorite times of the day is early morning when the beach is empty. Listening to the infinite rhythm of the surf is a form of meditation.

Succulents Succulents
Aileyn Renli Ecob   •  Walnut Creek, California, USA More Info
SOLD My joy comes from capturing in fabric some aspect of life around me.

In Succulents, the soft colors and smooth surfaces of succulents, along with the low-contrast background and gently curving quilting pattern, suggest ▶

Summer at the Waterfront Summer at the Waterfront
Sarah Entsminger   •  Ashburn, Virginia, USA More Info
NFSStill waters — lakes and slow-moving rivers and streams —calm and soothe my soul. The colors shimmering in the light, the slow-moving dance on the surface, the cool and clear textures, and even the smell of the water, take me back to places of comfort and peace. I recall memories of sleeping in canoes on still summer nights, slowly paddling in the sunlight, or ▶

Translucency and Lavender Translucency and Lavender
Judith Larzelere   •  Westerly, Rhode Island, USA More Info
$2500   Buy Now  » I am exploring the interaction of matte, reflective, and transparent fabrics to create ambiguity and change in my image.

I am interested in making minimalist art that links simplicity to meditation.
Tranquility the End Tranquility the End
Michele Lea   •  Oxford, Ohio, USA More Info
NFSThis quilt is very personal for me in that I am constantly searching for peace and tranquility. Trying to find a place of light, rather than focusing on the cloud of darkness that looms over me, is a daily ritual. I suffer from chronic mental depression, which is a disease with no cure. More than 40 million people suffer from it and suicide is an ongoing threat for those of ▶
Trees: Contemplation Trees: Contemplation
Lorna M. Morck   •   Los Alamos, California, USA More Info
$1000   Buy Now  » To me, trees are extraordinary. Steadily observing one particular tree over time can equate to a private meditation.

This piece started with a tree trunk, became geometric at the top, then evolved into a contemplation of its own image at the bottom.

Whooper Reflection Whooper Reflection
Judith Roderick   •  Placitas, New Mexico, USA More Info

It reflects my hope, intention, and prayer that they ▶
Adoration Adoration
Gwyned Trefethen   •  Appleton, Wisconsin, USA More Info
