This remains one of my steadfast favorites as it represented a new direction in my art. The piece began with white fabric with the exception of the solid black. In trying to achieve the patina that comes with age, the background was dyed and painted five times before the ink work was done and the paper-pieced fans were added.
It was also the first piece I had ever entered in a juried international show, and it was awarded the Judges Choice Award. I could not have been more thrilled. It gave me the confidence to continue on and enter more exhibits.
