This is a medium I came up with about 20 years ago.† I call it a carpet mural and itís made of pieces cut from carpet samples and remnants. The pieces are glued on a backing (usually plywood) and framed. Most are about 4 feet wide. The first and last murals are larger.

This one is huge: 67Ē x 41Ē. It represents some of the things I love about my property and would miss if I moved. This way I can take them with me.

I made this one for my niece. It represents her 5 cats.
This one was for my daughter Lois, who was a fantastic flutist.
