They watch him, 2013

Dimensions: 25.5 ” W x 19″L

Artist dye-painted cotton whole cloth, photo printed on habotai silk, machine quilt drawing.

I love this photo of my father’s cousin, Sammy Lester from around 1924.  I use the image often in different ways.  You can see it in another piece here.  The original photo with his sister, Gwen is here.

I used to use the whole photo and frame it with the art quilt.  That worked for a while.  I like taking the person out of the background and placing them in a landscape of my imagination.
