My experience of moving from city to country was sharpened during a discussion with our local butcher, who also manages a dairy. Milk is such a daily necessity for most of us. Every single day of their lives, dairy cows need to be milked. As I pondered our theme Every Single Day, neighbour's cows passed by our back fence - and bingo, "Milk In Time" became my piece of work.
Sketching in my journal I thought about the elements involved in milking cows and this process did help the design of my piece. I selected hand dyed and painted fabrics depicting nature's colours (especially greens) and with thread and fabric, drew images of cows and milk bottles to emphasise the milk theme. I wanted to keep the composition simple but with a touch of complexity to capture viewer's interest.
