Acts of bravery and courage come with the job of a firefighter. Sometimes they go above and beyond to save animals trapped in a fire. To pet owners, rescuing a pet is like saving a member of the family. I wanted my art quilt to convey the suspense and hope in this act of compassion.
I utilized a combination of appliqué techniques, thread painting and pigment in my quilt to capture intense color and emotion.
