Working Through the Damage

BlogHer Original Post

finally

the longest year is history (almost)
you can feel a very palpable sigh of relief as this milestone passes.
i've been watching the local goings on while stitching all day...
a very appropriate backdrop.

It is said that Life informs Art.  In the case of multi-media artist and Louisana resident Claire Fenton, this is definately true.  Last year's hurricane season has been the grist for Claire Fenton's art for a year.

Immediately last year, there were fiber postcards made and shipped to the Quilt Festival in Houston to be sold for a fundraising.

This week there is the completion of a large Katrina piece(detail shown above),  and additional work on an as yet unfinished smaller piece. And a partial explanation of the details here.
