"Ten Stars on Sticks", 12" x 11.5", made by Pam Geisel, June 2015

I will also have a piece in the Village Artisans Lobby Show: “Art That Tells a Story: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words / A Word is Worth a Thousand Pictures.”

My piece is "Ten Stars on Sticks" and is done in my fabric mosaic style with tulle on top to add sparkle, but it's bound like a traditional quilt and not matted. The text is written with a Sharpie marker.
