Longview, WA USA
Width: 11.75" Length: 8.75"
Materials/Techniques: I drew the bugs and the bird on separate pieces of cloth and colored them and free motion quilted them then cut them out. The bird was drawn on a cloth that had a mishap. That is why I draw everything because new tech things stump me. I was a little put out because I had messed up whatever I was trying to print and got the Google page with the weather. You can see it was summer. I have saved this piece of fabric for some time and then I knew I must draw the bird over it. I then cut them out and put them on the black background. The reeds are silk ribbons. It is thread signed.
Artist Statement: These are some of the bugs that visit my yard and the bird that gets some of them.
Dedication: To my mother and my two friends who are caregivers, Barbara and Ele'.
