Sunday Hat Ocean Coral

Sunday Hat Ocean Coral. Fabric yo-yos, fabric & thread wrapped wire, mounted on board. 4.5"x4.5"x4". $195.00

This tiny piece was created for entry into the 5x5x5 Exhibition at River Oaks Art Square in Alexandria, LA. 
It makes me think of the fabulous hats ladies wear to Sunday service and Ocean Coral.
It makes me smile.

In Memory of a Friend

Connie's Gown. 2018. Night gown, fabric yo-yos, on canvas panel. 10.5"x10.5"x2.5".

My dear friend, Connie, gave me this night gown over 25 years ago. 
I have worn it out. 
I will never receive another earthly gift from her, and so I honor her by creating a work of art with this lovely little gown she gave me. 
I wish you had chosen to remain with us - we miss you dearly.

MOTHER'S BUTTONS

MOTHER'S BUTTONS. 10.5 x 10.5 x 2.5". Polyester fabric, various buttons. 2017
Here is my latest yo-yo piece.

While clearing our my mother's condo (she in now in assisted living), I came upon a small plastic bag of these buttons. They were all tints of yellow and ivory except for one small purple button. Her favorite color is green. This piece honors my mother for keeping her 7 children clothed and fed. Thank you Mabel.
