College Student

College Student.  Stitched words around “star”:  Never Too Late to Learn.  Background words include various college majors. Xylene transfer on tea-stained muslin.  Hand embroidery and beading. 25" x 19" unframed;  31” x 25” framed. Click on image to enlarge.

I'm especially happy with this piece because it is exactly what I wanted to depict before I found the perfect person to pose! This wonderful lady said that going back to college was the best decision she ever made. An education is never complete. Each of us really should be learning new things every day.

She is also related to At Risk Adoption, another portrait in this series.  She’s the grandma to the three kids!
