Art Quilt Michael and Mary


A very long time ago , around 1970-71 I sketched a somewhat racy picture of myself and Michael on a piece of notebook paper. You can see that the picture is fading with time but the memories are still strong. I came across it after having to look at  more paper work. The act of making this wall art hanging has keep me occupied during the long evenings. It is 23"-13" and is mostly hand sewn.   Hope that I won't be shocking our children by posting this on my blog  :-)  My Michael might be gone from this world now but not from my heart.

Mary Louisa...I "feel" what you have created here. It is beautiful, and I know creating it was probably joyous and sad at the same time. When I look at this I feel both of those emotions, and that is what art does for us...I miss ya man...love Colleen

It takes such braveness to work with memories in such a close and intimate way. I feel that you and Michael had something very special together.
Thank you for sharing this with your blog friends.
Your loss in enormous, I am sorry Michael had to leave so soon.
Keep them coming, flowing and keep creating dear friend.
Hugs. Erla
