Something different–Gee’s Bend Floor Cloth

IMG_5882   This is a 4′ x 4′ floor cloth painted with acrylics on canvas–very different from my usual work.

    The design is based on a quilt made in the community of Gee’s Bend,  Alabama, an African-American community known for its incredible quilts.  To see more of these wonderful, alive, colorful quilts, go to this link:
This floor cloth was made for my sister Betsey (Elizabeth Maupin), a potter, who made me a fanciful painted pottery clock in return.  To see her work, go to her link in the sidebar on the right.
