My daughter Laura and I worked on this piece together. The birds are some of my hand painted watercolours – Laura has carefully arranged them on the branches of a magnificent old tree photographed in her garden. The assembled elements were digitally printed onto cotton fabric and then free motion quilted. The text you can see in the spaces between the branches is a phrase from a Neil Young song, “There you stood on the edge of a feather, expecting to fly.”.
