Wing Fragments Series


So far, I've completed 5 of my wing fragment series. All are 10" x 10", fused applique, and mounted on cradled board with sticky velcro. This method of mounting is working well for me so far, and would allow removal if someone wanted to frame a piece instead (or if I want to recycle the cradled board for another purpose!).

I find the graphic patterns in the butterfly wings to be exquisite and artful and wanted to focus on these qualities in my works. They are currently on display at the Lodge of the Fisherman in Lynchburg, Va.
