Hand-woven Landscapes
These handwoven landscapes are some of the newest of Linda's creations.  The colors are bolder than her pastel shell weavings and they rely more on color and texture as design elements.  There are some small shells in some of the landscapes, but the shells have a much less important role in the total design.  These designs come from many years of viewing the topography of upstate New York with its relatively flat land with trees and rolling hills at the horizon line.  This topograhy is interpreted by the artist as undulating lines using chaining and twining weaving techniques, separated by areas of hand-dyed locks of sheep's wool and strips of overshot pattern weave.  Horizontal lines of shiny rayon and silk fleece in the lower part of the sky area contrasts with the more vibrant color and movement of the rest of the piece. The weavings are custom-matted and framed using all acid-free materials.  Smaller images below each piece show the weavings with frames.  (Reference inventory numbers.)

F-070  Green and Brown Landscape with Starfish
A hand-dyed wool with brown, green, turquoise and gold forms the base color in this landscape.  These colors repeated in the section of undulating forms at the horizon.  The sky in this weaving is woven of a neutral gold-colored rayon with cloud forms of yellow rayon and chenille.  Brown tree forms are sewn along the horizon line and a few brown shells and a small starfish have been added in the lower middle of the weaving.  Triple matted and framed in a dark walnut frame with goldish-tan mat with brown and green inner liner.  (Frame shown below.)
