I pulled a piece of cardboard from behind my desk and put it on my studio floor. I took out my collage materials and chose one of the collages I started a while back.
I don’t know how long I worked on it, but time seemed to go quickly. Finally, I cut two of the figures out of the collage pulled most of what I had glued on top of the girl off, and drew her a pair of legs.
I placed her and the sheep on a piece of old quilt backing and took one of the appliques from the front of the quilt and hung it in the corner like a sun.
The girl and sheep made of canvas. I haven’t attached them to the quilt yet, I’m not sure how I will, but I’ll figure it out.
As I placed each piece of fabric down on the quilt back, as I drew the legs and boots, I knew it was right. I knew it was saying exactly what I wanted it to.
I know the title too, it’s called “I Am Not A Ghost.”
