Width: 12" Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: The campfire is stitched with many colored threads over hand painted areas of cotton and an overlay of tulle. A painted batting marshmallow and hand painted hotdog cook on the end of machine appliquéd sticks. 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. So many happy memories revolve around cookouts -- toasted marshmallows (let it catch fire and blow it out) and hot dogs. YUMMY!
