It depicts my grandson (life size - as was) bowed under the weight of an oil derrick. the background is all long blue hand stitches symbolizing water- could be rears, could be rain..thinking about the damage to the environment we are bequeathing to our descendants.
Cottone, hand dyed and/or screen printed
Background is pieced and hand stitched, foreground is appliqued. I made several of these oil quilts.
