The three artworks for Camp K-9 of Marin celebrate the special relationship between man and his canine best friend. Sewn and painted fabrics were the creative means to produce a visual narrative that is colorful, playful, cheerful, welcoming, and heartwarming.
Solid colored fabric areas are balanced with painted fabric areas, while strong colors are balanced with soft. Detailed painting is balanced with abstract painting, and hand-stitching is balanced with machine sewing. The resulting overall design of colors and shapes can be appreciated as one harmonious design from a distance, while the wonderful details that speak of handmade craft delight upon close inspection.
