4926 - She Remembered Me When She Heard Our Song   ($95)

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: cotton fabrics, gold metallic thread, black and variegated threads, acrylic paint, watersoluble wax pastels, batting, stabilizer. This is an original painting onto cotton fabric. The woman's face was painted using acrylic and wax pastels, and her dress, the birds, and flower embellishments were fused and machine appliqued. The quilt was thread sketched with black thread and quilted with gold metallic thread. The leaf is my original stencil design, and they were stenciled with wax pastels

Artist's Statement: Music is powerful. It can open hard hearts. It can soften broken hearts. It can heal pain. It can heighten the emotions of celebrations. It can open a pathway to the secret place where memories live. Music can enter a locked heart when words or other keys cannot.
Fannie Narte

Dedication: For those who feel caged.
