This little painting was inspired by a square from the Rockefeller Quilt designed by Dorothy Weatherford as a gift to Sharon Percy Rockefeller for her help in supporting their efforts to establish the Mountain Artisans Cooperative of West Virginia.
The book that features this quilt I received many years ago and every once in awhile I flip through it and admire the work of these wonderful women. This quilt in particular is so filled with lovely folk art designs and then executed in such bright happy colors that it just brightens even the dullest day! I did add a few personal elements and by necessity had to leave off a few others to arrive at this cheerful result. I am not sure if I am entirely finished with it, but I have another idea I am anxious to start on so for now this is "finished".
Have a great day and keep smiling!
