Donald in Light
Donald has led a life full of twists and turns. He began his adulthood serving his country in the French Indonesian war in 1956 70 years ago. He later served in Korea and another war that he will not talk about. He has had cancer numerous times and still is fighting lung cancer. I took his photo as he sat in an old barn in New Mexico. The light of the setting sun graces his face and leads us to believe that he is content with his life. At age 86, I believe that he is satisfied with his life and that his future holds promise. I covered his face and beard in 85 different colors of thread blended seamlessly to reflect his countenance. The background of the quilt is free motion quilting. Donald is truly tranquil as he watches the sun set over the mountains in New Mexico.
Donald was on tour between 2016 and fall of 2019. He spent two years in Australia.
