Stitched fabric collage. No paint was used in this artwork.
This piece took three years to create. During that time, I lost eleven people that were close to me, and I become the executrix for two of the estates. The small amount of time when I could escape to my studio provided some relief, but also gave me a chance to reflect on the meaningful moments that I had shared with the departed.
Two Tango dancers that I had photographed in Argentina had the exact expression that I wanted in this quilt!
