Three years after the death of my youngest brother, I started Zentangles. I progressed to coloring them in with colored pencil and I eventually turned to making Mandala like drawings. This piece is one of those drawings, printed onto fabric which I then quilted, embroidered and beaded. As I was finishing the piece I realized that it looked like Spring coming out of a hard winter-thus the name "After Winter's grip come Spring". I've contributed to Circle of Art for several years.
