The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface - So it is that we develop - But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work. For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece.

Really Worth Mentioning

"The world is but a canvas to the imiagination"
Henry David Thoreau

UNL/News Release/Award-winning Japanese Quilts Exhibit

This is so beyond my imagination - and is all hand stitched. 
I will be realistic with my "life line" and say 'not in my lifetime.'
  I certainly do admire others who can create such masterpieces. 
The 9th Quilt Nihon Exhibition 
to see a close up of her beautiful work.
"Three Sisters" by Hiroko Nakayama, Japan - her words in the press release
are as beautiful as her quilt ...
"A few years before I started working on this quilt, I had a poster of Chekov's Three Sisters on my wall. I was especially drawn to the background colors which reminded my two sisters and I that we were at the brink of the so-called "evening glow" age."
"The colors are clear and bright but are also the sad colors of sunset.
 reminiscing on memories of our lives and also, remembering that life is often likened to a voyage.
 I made this quilt using the Mariner's Compass and depicted the colors of the sunset.
 I stitched the quilt by hand: every stitch representing our long journey in life."
