Exploring the 1st century city of Segovia, with its ancient Roman Aqueduct...The huge stone arches balance overhead and the view through each one is of present day Segovia, with the snow-capped peaks of the ......in the background. The sense of history the structure provides, frames an amazing view and makes one think, "Wonder what will be in the future?"

"The Present Through the Past" (2014) is part of my series, "Visions of Spain". Pieces of fabric were used as one would use paint to create a fabric collage. After the design is complete, the top is layered with a thin batting and backing fabric. More detail, texture, and depth of design is added with threadpainting and quilting.

A hanging sleeve is added to the back for displaying. As a Free Bonus gift, a small slat with two holes is included (Can be hung with 2 pins or small nails~not included). Other options for displaying textiles pieces include shadow box frames or mounting on canvas. Professional framers, experienced with preserving and displaying textiles, can be helpful with these and other ideas.

This design is also offered as an open-edition, archival Art Print~See "Art Prints" in Shop.
