    Memories of my Dad - A Man and His Horse

    As soon as I saw this photo I knew I had to do it as it was so much like a picture of my Dad that had been lost years ago. Everything was the same, his size, the color of the horse and the gentleness of the way he relates to his horse. This picture will go in my dining room with the rest of my western art. All of the fabrics have been hand dyed by me and the picture is done with the fusible applique method. Now I have to add the borders and quilt it. Also, the stripes on his shirt are painted on with a brush and textile paint. I couldn't cut stripes that small out of fabric.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    My heart just dropped when I saw it. I could just see the love and kindness and trust between the two of them.

    Very nice. Your work amazes and inspires me!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
