Children of the Sky
23.5 in(60 cm x 60 cm)
This piece is inspired by the arrival of the first swallow in spring. Their arrival each year ignites such a feeling of joy and hope that nature continues whatever else is happening in the human world. The beautiful poem 'Children of the Sky' by local farmer Mark Britten expresses this feeling perfectly. Mark has a deep understanding of the seasons and his local environment and I used his words for the backdrop of this picture, free motion stitching the words within the spiral.
Layered fabrics and textile art paint.
Hand and machine stitched.
