“Purple Rain” is an original fabric art piece I made while on a trip to visit my son in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Whenever I travel I usually buy fabric to add to my stash. All the fabrics in this piece were purchased during the trip. The purple fabric reminded me of rain puddles and the echoing ring that forms when a rain drops. In my new stash was a fabric with two different images of geishas with umbrellas. I chose one that had one foot forward. I placed it on the purple fabric so it would look like the geisha was stepping into a puddle. I chose another fabric to represent ground with golden grass. Next I cut out parts of another fabric to look like tall budding plants. I overlapped the peach color with a smaller piece of pink fabric, to give the plant some depth. The image is representing how beautiful and magical a rainy day can be. I still play in puddles!
