Memorial Day Quilting

Memorial Day Quilting - 6 x 6 Oil on Canvas Board

This painting was done for the current DPW challenge "polka dots".  I wanted to incorporate something to do with Memorial Day, since it was painted today, which is Memorial Day.  And working with fabrics, you have a lot of leeway as far as pattern and color.  I did keep the colors pretty much the same as the actual fabrics, but changed the patterns a bit.  I probably should have gone with red and white stripes, and blue and white dots, but I didn't want it to look like I'd been cutting up an American flag! :)

  1. Really like this painting. Different fabrics but I still get the feel of the flag. Nice sentiment to Memorial Day too.
