Bringing light and color to January, this is my new fiber collage. With glowing, lemon sorbet flowers, this meconopsis is the star of its boulder home, which is crowded with gorgeous mountain flowers. They grow beside a tumbling stream in the Province of Sichuan in the Eastern Himalayas.

Beginning the new working year, I am returning to the yellow meconopsis, placing them in their Himalayan landscape.

Meconopsis integrifolia are the subject of my new Himalayan collage. Luscious, luminous flowers that seem to hold sunlight.

With winter beginning to bite I keep warm in the studio with hat, coat, finger-less mittens and snow boots.

The mossy boulders are now populated with Meconopsis and Rhododendrons and you can see how the whole composition is coming together.

A boulder strewn stream leading down from the mountains is to be the setting for meconopsis and rhododendrons.

Moody mountains were the backdrop to all our travels in the Eastern Himalayas this summer. This challenging dye-work reflects the experience. You can see the mirror image on the paper on which I painted the dyes before heat transferring them to polyester satin.

Mauve dwarf rhododendrons will accompany the meconopsis in my new collage. I came to think of them as the Himalayan equivalent of our heather, carpeting whole mountainsides.
