Open Window

My newest piece in the doors and windows series:

Open Window

now on display at Art on Boston gallery
24″ x 18″

This piece came together very quickly, in one sewing session – although I had a bunch of the greens and yellows already stripped and sewn.

This is the 1st century Roman arena in Arles
– still used for bullfights and other events – although they stopped the gladiator contests and throwing Christians to the wild beasts a while back.

So I am expecting to make a few more doors and windows with roman arches and stairs with light flowing down –
