Bloom (Poppies)
2015
acrylic on eyelet
15 x 19 inches

This painting is on eyelet, the embroidered cotton that’s sometimes used for bed ruffles. I had bought the material in 2007 to use in this painting to call attention to the fact that the heart on the sleeve really was sewn on. For more about the making of Bloom, check out this vlog.
