The text on the quilt includes parts of a poem by Ann Sexton that reads "Home is my Bethlehem, my succoring shelter, my mental hospital, my wife, my dam, my husband, my sir, my womb, my skull." I painted the background and used various methods of photo transfers including decals, gel transfers and transparencies, stamping, silk screening, and stamping. Lots of techniques.
I think the last of my house series is a piece that is in the Art Quilt XII exhibition in Chandler Arizona called "House of Dreams". The background is painted canvas, stenciled letters that read "the house shelters, protects dreams", a house from fabric I have painted/silk screened/stamped, etc. . I really like how the silk screened faces in the door turned out.House of Dreams
