About the quilt: This quilt uniquely combines fabric and watercolor paintings to commemorate the life of Bonnie Crosse, who passed away in 2017 at age 86. Bonnie was an artist, activist, therapist and creative spirit beloved by many. I was blessed with her friendship for seven years. Each quilt panel celebrates a color. Three panels shown below:
Depicting views from a backyard gathering in Richmond (backyard shed), and a birthday party in Berkeley (pots on porch).
A nice getaway to Lake Hemet in Southern California, up in the cool hills near Idyllwild. I painted these scenes while out on my dear friend Denise’s pontoon boat.
