I spent my early childhood in the city of Toronto. I was lucky to have grandparents who lived on a farm in the Collingwood area ... soft rolling hills of fertile land that was perfect for mixed farming.The brick house was built in the late 1800's, the barn and other buildings were older. My brother and I spent our summers exploring. I love the sun bleached wood of old buildings and the old rusted equipment, often left where it was last used. Hollyhocks adorned these abondoned sheds.
This piece will be the cover to a fabric art book based on those 'country' memories.
Techniques: the design is original and was painted & free motion stitched
