The Hibernation

This is a soft sculpture painting made within an antique frame.
The ‘painting’ is made on a canvas cushion of firmly stuffed cotton showing us a mysterious forest and house rooted inside the hill.
The roots have been needle-sculpted and ‘pop out’ of the surface.
A doll made of textile holds another smaller painting inside her skirt. This is the sleeping lady,
the spirit of the woodlands, she is in a deep slumber until the returning of spring.
Her ghost can be seen flying out of the chimney, sprinkling the forest with soft white snow.
