Description: 

Rebecca Barker is a painter from Ohio whose "childhood appreciation for quilts and country life inspires the subjects she paints today" (-www.barkerquiltscapes.com). Each quiltscape takes a quilt pattern and pairs its color palette with an accompanying landscape. Here, a red, white, and blue starburst patterned quilt hangs on a laundry line outside. Beyond it are rows of a crop and farm on the horizon that is framed by the clothespins holding the quilt in place. Dreamlike clouds populate the sky and comfort provided by the quilt and quaint farm emanate from the scene.
