A little girl in a chair, being good, in warm colors with richly textured background
Being Good
Mixed Media textiles
30 x 36


This work is part of the memory and dream series. I know this little girl. She lives inside me. I have placed her in a background that suggests her experience. There is a lot going on. The fabric patterns become a metaphor for forces and events that are around her but beyond her control. The background was created with painted, stenciled and resist-imaged natural muslin, as well as sheer fabrics monotype printed with acrylics.

The work is mounted on a birch plywood panel, clean-edge-wrapped, and framed from the back for the appearance of floating 2" from the wall.
