salvage moon

here is my piece for the art quilts around the world challenge for march 2011 - the theme was 'different' and this certainly is...

it's not the piece i intended to make and not the piece it almost was.  it is made from strips of painted rice paper, vellum, sheet music, painted bondaweb, cotton, xpanda paint, gesso, ink, oilsticks and red perle thread.
it was rescued at the last minute by a desperate and frenzied washing under the cold tap and then the addition of paint, stitching and oil stick.
