The four pieces are a set. The sewn canvas creates a likeness to an aerial view of farm land. I left the frayed edge of the canvas exposed more on these pieces. I wanted to create a raw quality and focus the viewers attention on the sewing. I painted the pieces with oil paint and then rubbed them with solvent-soaked rags to create the dyed or stained effect. I wanted the works to look open and honest. I think the cheery colors help to "inviting the audience in".
