I use old cotton bed sheets I save.
This 20X20 piece of cotton bed sheet had the best colors.
I looked at it all last summer thinking of what I saw.
In September I sat down at the sewing machine
and free hand added lines of threads
to bring out the landscape in my mind.
Tree's, a pond and sky emerged from the rag.
I highlighted with Derwent color pencils.
A pastoral setting emerged from the cotton.
This was the first piece sold in our Art League's fall Art Show.
An artist bought the cloth painting for a Christmas gift for a relative.

We look out at the winter landscape to see the bones of trees stark against the Sunday sky.
Life is all memory except for the one present moment
that goes by so quick you can hardly catch it going.
