This was for a friend of mine named Colleen, who was one of my coworkers at the time. This is her sister — who died from cancer a few years prior — and Colleen's pet doberman. This picture was a gift for her mother on her mother's birthday.
This is the first time I've ever experimented with doing portraits out of fabric. I did not want to use any dye or paint in this piece to get the skintones right, so I found fabrics that already had an accurate color palette.
This is the last fabric picture I would make for seven years.
