#105 "The Flowers Left Behind"

#105 Venessa Budetti of Newburgh, NY

“The Flowers Left Behind”

Embellishments & Technique: Painted inside of bra and outside covered with fabric.

Artist’s Statement: This is created in memory of my cousin, Karen Mitchell. She was an avid gardener and quilter. She died at age 52 of breast cancer. I went through her fabric stash and found these little yo-yo’s that she had completed. There weren’t many, but I have saved them for several years. They remind me of the flowers she grew and loved. They are now the flowers Karen left behind.
