This handwoven wall hanging shows the ocean and a mostly clear night sky.
Grey, wispy clouds scud across a purple night sky, alternately obscuring and framing the stars. The sea swirls in shades of blue and green, occasionally reflecting the plum of the heavens.
"Montara," part of a summer tapestry series that was inspired by California, is based on many of my nighttime California and ocean/beach memories. The night sky over the ocean is just one of those experiences that imprints itself on you, deep down. There is a magic to it, and really, I didn't even come close to fully capturing that feeling, but that feeling is what inspired this piece.
Note: this weaving is shown without a braid to hang the dowel from. The braid is available upon request, or it can be hung directly on a nail.
