This is a portrait piece that was commissioned by Jo Ann Valuch as a gift to her daughter, Jennifer. The image depicts Jen's dog Robbie who passed away in 2008.
The piece is done on silk and enhanced with acrylic paint and framed by hand dyed and painted fabrics. Some of these fabrics are dyed or painted by me some are done by other local artists. I used one commercial batik. Below is a detail of the piece.
This is the back of the piece. Attached is a brief quote and the reason the piece was constructed.
