I think the work of Dale Chihuly is amazing! 

I get great energy by looking at images of his pieces, some of which I include here . 

This sampler is inspired by the colors and patterns of his glass. 

As I painted, I thought about watercolor as both a transparent and  opaque medium

Sampler quilts are notable for having unique patterns without any repeat of  individual blocks within the layout.  I find creating watercolor "samplers" to be  especially freeing , making these projects both inventive and meditative.  The  painted patchworks here echo the colors and /or designs of some of my favorite vessels!
