Wrongfully Convicted

Greetings All,
I was  asked by my daughter to create a piece that focus was the "wrongfully convicted".  I chose to do a collage of paper and fiberglass window screen.  It is simple, but yet powerful I hope.

2nd Commission of 2017 - Kate The Great.

Greetings All,
Here is my 2nd commission of 2017 and this one is titled "Kate The Great" in honor of Martin Luther wife Katharina von Bora.   She was a nun, wife, mother, administer, and manager of the vast holdings of the monastery, breeding and selling cattle, and running a brewery in order to provide for their family and the steady stream of students who boarded with them and visitors seeking audiences with her husband. In times of widespread illness, Katharina operated a hospital on site, ministering to the sick alongside other nurses. Luther called her the "boss of Zulsdorf," after the name of the farm they owned, and the "morning star of Wittenberg" for her habit of rising at 4 a.m. to take care of her various responsibilities.

Fused appliqué and small quilted appliqué added as an embellishment and machine quilted.   Thread drawing and enhancements with Prismacolor pencils, markers, and paint pens.
