Even though I created this piece back in 2007, I don't think it has ever been shown on this blog. I am showing it now because it has just been juried into the Sacred Threads 2011 show in Washington DC. Hand dyed fabric is fused, then screen printed with the cows followed by machine and hand stitching.
In 2006, my parents moved from their ranch of 50 years to another ranch in Central Montana. I helped them move and made a lot of trips back and forth. This image represents the scenery along the drive from their old place to the new one. The highway travels along the Big Snowy Mountains, and it is ranch country. There are always cattle grazing in the pastures along the way.
