Family Farm

Family Farm

28″W X 42″H

Hemp fabric plus natural fiber cords –  hand dyed, screened, painted and stitched.

The imagery and stitching  in “Family Farm” suggests the variety of crops needed to maintain a healthy field, while the roots suggest a family laying down its roots in the earth. The text is from  a journal written between 1860 and 1864  by my husband’s great-great grandfather, a Spencer County Kentucky farmer.
