Prompt #12: Make a piece about an emotion. I wanted to show calm under pressure, using my past textile techniques.

Some of you had asked if it would be possible to click on the image and have it come up larger. Let me know if clicking on it does it now. I know that it will open it in a new window and, if it isn't larger, then maybe you can enlarge it by  using Command +. Let me know what happens. Thanks!

Stay Calm. 10.5 inches high x 8.5 inches wide. Textiles, bird feathers, beads, buttons, thread, colored pencils, machine stitching.
