12,696 - Goodbye Mother ($50.00)

Width: 8.25" Length: 10.25"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric background, interfacing, flannel batting, painted canvas pieces, fabric glue, paint pens. Cotton /poly and invisible thread were used with rough edge appliqué and machine quilting.

Artist Statement: Every so often at auction I buy damaged paintings so that I can re-use the canvas. This painting had a lot of gray and black and was fairly small but by careful cutting and piecing I was able to get three little quilts from it. It was a bargain and I had a lot of fun figuring out how to use it. I titled this one Goodbye Mother because no matter how old you are, when you say goodbye to your mother you are always a child.
