Wood You Mind

The best thing about working with wood is taking your time and not missing the slight variations. Doing a little something on this former pine stair step, using a table saw and a Fortsner bit set, before work. I tweaked out seven quilt holders. Stain and epoxy comes later. #turnmeloosemane #jasmardisart #dontsaywoodpeckerboy

“Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child” leather pyrography portrait with narrative quilting


I’ve worked on this for about a month to get the right balance of fabric and swathes to tell the story of the song. “Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child”. I decided to have the image eating a slice of melon and allow pink, white and a tricycle fabric to represent her youth. The brown and orange, blues and green fabrics represent her carrying the feelings into her later years. As for the “mother” she’s represented in the thin, lime on the right and a flowery fabric at the top, beneath “a long, long way from home”. The hanger is 1.5” wide and I have a small block at the bottom of the quilt for balance.
