Enduring Radience of the Stalwart Heart
22x22" unframed fiber collage with freestyle machine stitching. This was a commission from someone who gave it as a gift to a veterinarian that fosters unusual animals when they become injured in the wild or are abandoned or can no longer be cared for by their "owners." The vet fell in love with a black bear named, "Ben," who had his own label for honey from the farm. She has long held a cherished place in her heart too for pelicans in general, and three in particular through the years, found injured and restored to health. They are quite lovely, comical birds. This vet's work ethic and big heart are inspiring.
