What is the story behind your panel?
“As soon as I decided to do recycling for my theme I pictured the quilt in my head – I wanted to do something with a reflection – the reflection being what we see so often everyday; trash on the side of the road, in our lakes & rivers, etc…. And the top half would be what it should be like.
For the tree I portrayed the reflection part as cardboard & newspaper – since we loose so many trees to those two two items. If more infividuals and businesses started recycling, so much of our natural resources could be saved for other generations to enjoy. I am very fortunate to work for a company that recycles and encourages its employees to so the same.”
