Landscape art quilt- Rendevous in Venice
Materials: cottons, batiks, lame, tulle
Width: 18.5 inches
Height: 25.5 inches
With inspiration from my own photo taken at just the right moment last spring in Venice, I created this intimate scene that allows the viewer to imagine the rest of the story. Considered one of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice was home to one of the last great masters of the Renaissance, Tintoretto.. most famous for his use of perspective.
Although this wall quilt looks like an oil painting, I carefully chose the fabrics and appliqued each piece to create layers of depth. The iron gate in the archway as well as the subtle shadows on the wall are hand-painted. The gentle curves of the approaching gondola are achieved with a trapunto technique.
Ready to display in your home or office with a 4" sleeve on the back. This original fiber art measures 19" wide x 26" high.
Created in a pet free and fragrance free studio.

I fell in love with this item the moment I saw it on Etsy, and when I saw it on arrival it far exceeded my expectations. Since I live in a California earthquake area, I wanted something above my bed that was lightweight. The colors and the size were perfect. I love the way the Aspens dominate the piece, the way the leaves pop and look like they are "quaking", and the depth of field the piece captures so that it feels like I'm looking deep into the forest. Barb is a gifted artist who clearly loves nature. Thanks so much.
"Best in Show!" This is an amazing quilt in every way. Up close, I see Barb's wonderful fabric choices and painstaking effort. Across the room, the quilt looks like a magnificent view out of a cabin window -- so realistic. I have collected about three dozen quilts over the years, but the quality and splendor of Denali is almost more than words can describe. Again, it's amazing. Communication with the seller/artist was nearly instantaneous. Barb described her technique and even sent me photos of the quilt's design and "construction." If I could give Barb 100 stars, I would. SHE is amazing, too. Thank you.
I love my wall hanging! I have turned a small bedroom into my office/study and this hangs over my desk. It is a wonderful sight that inspires beauty and wonder. Love it!
Very fast shipping on a lovely wall quilt. Seller had great communication during the transaction process. I thought the description of the quilt included rhinestones but I didn't see any on it, I can always add my own though. Very happy with purchase.
