Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

This piece was accepted into “Tone it UP” opening May 11 at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. The idea was to create on a theme that we are passionate about. I am passionate about lowering my carbon footprint, so I used plastic bags, cut them up and heat-fused them together. I used a simple, classic composition, but there is detail up close. The entire background is hand quilted, and there are words/images you can make out among the pieces of plastic.
