Longview, WA USA
Width: 8" Length: 11.5"
Materials/Techniques: I drew a church and then cut out the pieces of white cloth. I colored the sky cloth with Neo Color II crayons and colored the church with Inktense pencils. The foreground is commercial cloth. It is appliquéd and then free motion quilted and thread signed.
Artist Statement: As a child when my mother would be out of school for the summer, we would take a car trip to Oklahoma to see her parents. There was a lot of barren land but I guess that is when I started to see beauty wherever I was. There seemed to be a lot of lonely places. This church is a place like that, alone in the prairie.
Dedication: To my mother and my two friends, Barbara and Ele' who are great caregivers . Bless all the caregivers.
