Henderson, NC USAWidth:
Cotton fabric square from Hawaii, cotton fabrics; machine quilting.Artist's Statement:
Flowers have become my uncle’s muses, his moods, and his words. They are for him now what his many friends were before - his inspiration. They have names; they have reasons to exist; they have life. He smiles as they bloom in majesty, displaying their beauty to the world. He laughs as they are caressed by the wind, moving to the songs of unseen angels. He suffers as they fold in death and are no more. Such is our connection with someone we love. Such is the connection of lives shared by my uncle and his wife, for whom he suffers greatly, as, today, her life is no more.
Peggy Trickler Dedication:
For my uncle and aunt, whose connection will exist for eternity, despite the misfortune of Alzheimer's.
