Dia De Los Muertos ready to go "HMG"

So I gave up on the other one I was working on... I just wasn't getting anything right and I didn't like the colors I was using, plus the delicacy of the fabric meant I could not remove the stitching and try again so HERE is my new piece. A small quilted piece using some of my friends clothes I inherited. the purple fabric was a shirt, the green checkers was one of her dresses and the black backing was a dress of mine that she used to borrow a lot in Austin. I stitched a dragon fly similar to the tattoo she had on her shoulder. I used a darker thread for the dragon fly since I didn't want it to be too prominent.

Come support Lawndale Art Center October 22 - November 10, 2012. Half of the proceeds go to Lawndale (and if the retablo sells, the artist gets the other half).

11x11 fabric and thread mounted with Masonite.
