Beltane fires

One aspect of the bountiful beauty of the Blue Mountains National Park where I live is reflected in its ancient escarpments as they light up at sunset. For me, this represents the unstoppable, fiery energy of creativity at Beltane.

This quilt reflects the bountiful blossoming of the Blue Mountains National Park, an ancient landscape forged by fire and ice, where the fire energy of the sun lights up the escarpments, reminder of the daily cycle within the greater cycle of Earth's transition.
