Though several years old I like to share one of my first fabric pictures with you. I gave it away and it has been behind glass up till now where I had the opportunity of taking photos of it.
Wow, this is lovely and very moving. Thanks for sharing!
You caught the original beautifully. What is the size of the quilt?
This is absolutely beautiful, you are a true artist - you have captured something very special and evoking in this piece of work.
i used this same picture in a fabric book i made honoring my grand mother and father when the arrived from ireland...she and he were both mill workers in lowell mass...it didn't come out great, but it is a reminder to me how wonderful they were and how hard they worked...i love this picture and you really did it justice thank you, carol fuller59
Thank you for your comments. The Quilt is 22,5x30".I saw the picture together with a few other from that period. I think they all were very beautiful but also very sad because of the hard time showing in their faces. This picture stayed in my mind for some time and I just had to do something about it.
It is wonderful ,
thank you for sharing
Very nice you have really captured the moment which evokes her feelings. love it :-))
This is not an original photo. Did you receive permission to use it?
To my knowledge there are no copyright on this image. I did some research and found the common name of the picture and changed the name in the heading. At the same time I found the name of the photographer: Dorothea Lange - whose work I deeply respect and admire.
So thanks to the Internet for all that information.
This image has always intrigued me. I could look at it for hours.
You certainly did it justice with your textile art.
Congratulations! I would enjoy seeing more of your art.
This is just amazing ! Thanks for sharing your art.
Very nicely done...you have truly captured the essence of the original work here. For years I was a docent at the art museum where I live and had the privilege of seeing this photograph when I visited the galleries. This photo intrigued me then and your quilt does so as well. Thanks for sharing!
