Renewal Springs From Woman, Two Notecards, 5"x7"
Two beautiful, individually wrapped art cards. High-quality card stock. Blank on the inside.
Description: This piece features floral lace, a vintage butterfly handkerchief, a carved mandala from India, and fabrics passed down to me by my maternal grandmother. In addition, carved flower and butterfly beads from China and Costa Rica, Victorian-era metal buttons, and vintage European earrings and beads are all given new life in this intricate beaded painting, which honors the creativity of generations of women. Nearly 350 hours were spent painting and embroidering this piece. The creative abilities and laborious efforts of previous generations of women were often unsung, and my goal in this and other pieces is to validate and collaborate with them by recycling their lovingly made doilies and lace into paintings, where their “women’s work” can be newly appreciated for its unique beauty. Dimensions of original: 48" x 48"
