New Work: Scar Lined Up


As I zipped up my pants as I was getting dressed before going to work, six weeks or so after donating my kidney, I noticed in the mirror that my scar lined up with the line of my pants. While I did take a photo of it, I decided not to make an acrylic skin of the photo. Instead, this tiny painting is created with paint, and hand and machine stitched thread, on stiffened monoprinted fabric.

Scar Lined Up measures 3.75” x 4.125” and is mixed media on stiffened fabric.
