Yesterday I took a break from "The Lake" to create a gift for a friend.
"Laura's Lake" - 14" x 11"
This piece honors my friend Laura who died in February of this year. Laura's 88 summers were spent on the beach of Lake Michigan here in Macatawa. The colors and light reflected on this lake and beach is symbolic of her full and gracious life.
Laura was an accomplished needlework woman. Near the end of last summer I was gifted a box of her threads and yarns.
It pleased both of them to know that bits and pieces were incorporated into "Prairie Performance". I wrote about that here. Her husband was touched to get back some of those yarns and threads in "Laura's Lake".
