Toano, VA USA
Width: 11.75" Length: 9"
Materials/Techniques: The hand painted cotton fabric seemed a perfect background on which to machine appliqué the shredded organza mimosa blossoms and fringy leaves. The photo edges are cut with a wavy blade to resemble the deckle edges of photos from the 40's and 50's.
Artist Statement: This is part of a series of photos from my childhood -an extremely happy memory is of hours spent sitting on the limbs of a mimosa tree with my best friend as we talked about those timeless subjects of children and "powdered" our cheeks with the silky mimosa blossoms.
Dedication: To Sheila - still a best friend across the years and across the miles.
