    Default Yorklands Jail Farm

    This piece shows a portion of the stonework and water channels all assembled by hand during the early and mid 1900's when the several hundred acres were home to a Jail Farm. SInce it's decommission many years ago the province and the city have been struggling for development rights. A dedicated group is trying to preserve as much of the natural areas as possible.The photo was shot by a friend and member of the group and this piece is now donated to them for their use or auction.
    36 inches sq, cotton.
    Not a bad way to amuse myself for a month during lockdown.

    Words are failing me as I have to scrape the drool off my chin and get my tongue back in my mouth...

    Gotta enlarge the picture to even see that it is a quilt, not nature! Beautiful!

    I could look at this for hours. Beautiful. I cannot decide what I like more the close bare branches or the reflection in the water. Another amazing piece of art.
