Hi, I'm Patty. It's the first time I'm participate in an Art Blog Hop. I'd like to thank Alida for all her work and also to Andrée, my hostess for encouraging and guiding me throughout this new experience.
|"My Happy Yellow Cow" by Patty|
My quilt is inspired by "The Yellow Cow", one of the most famous works of Franz Marc (1880-1916). He was an extraordinary German artist, which I admire since ever. He was one of the main painters of the expressionism, co-founded with Kandinsky, of The Blue Rider magazine and movement that grouped expressionist artists from 1911 to 1914.
Franz Marc is known mostly because of the animals he used to paint in bold bright colors. Even if he evolved in style, until reaching the cubism and the abstractionism, he never abandoned neither the animals nor the wonderful colors.
Although I've read the analysis of "The Yellow Cow", which by the way is rather sad, I must say that in my humble opinion, I disagree. I've always seen her happy, having a good time, a wonderful moment of relaxation and pleasure. That's why in my quilt I'm showing her swimming freely and peacefully enjoying the fresh water on a hot summer day. A small peek look at Mother Earth.

I first drew a larger simplified image of the cow, then I cut it in a fabric to use it as foundation and I began to work on it by gluing flowers.

I'm really proud of being among so many talented artists.
Thank you to you all!
