Picture Perfect: Get Hooked on a New Jersey Sunset…

Today’s Picture Perfect photo is one I took while at an art exhibit, at the Barron Arts Center in Woodbridge, showcasing beautifully crafted hooked rugs with a New Jersey theme.  The entire feature about this exhibit will be posted shortly.  In the mean time, please enjoy this photo of a rug called “SUNSET at the JERSEY SHORE”  that was hooked by Debbie Walsh of Cranford, NJ and designed by Norma Batastini…

Hooked rug, "SUNSET at the JERSEY SHORE" by Debbie Walsh

Walsh is happy to share a little background about how her rug was made and where she found the inspiration: “This rug is based on a photo that I took of my two daughters at the beach in Wildwood Crest many years ago.  I began hooking this rug at a rug school at the Chalfonte Hotel in Cape May.  Some mixed media materials have been used in addition to hand dyed wool.”
