Under the Bottle Tree, 2014

Dimensions: 23′ W x 28″ L

Artist dyed cotton, linen and silk.  Photo printed on silk habotai.  Hand embroidered, hand and machine quilted.

This photo is Sam and Louise Lester and their first child Gwen.  Louise was my paternal grandfather’s only sister.  I have many pictures of her from an album of my grandmother’s. You can see the original picture here.This picture is probably from the early 1920’s.  I placed pieces of blue and red silk behind the photo to give the figures color.
