The story of this wall piece is written below the pictures :)

     First I found two identical sweaters at seperate thrift stores that I thought resembled stars and galaxies at night.  Then I acquired the blue and red hand dyed wool at a craft fair in Maine.  Lastly I picked up thick star shaped yellowish beads and placed them on the sweater.  It reminded me of being at the beach in darkness gazing upon the endless sky.  I decided to replicate this image with what you see adding cotton balls underneath to enhance a 3D effect.  Finally I attached the fishing boat to provide a secluded remote middle of the ocean type of feel.  This piece can also be viewed in the dark with a single spot light on it from above or an angle to replicate the moonlight.
