Slipping Away

I took a Rubik's cube and superimposed pictures of mom on it. I used invisible thread over the pictures and then thread painted the plate and background. The background is a picture of the spread my grandmother made using a hairpin and butcher's twine. The machine did not stitch cleanly and to smooth out the invisible thread I covered the plate with clear nail polish. The ring is representative of the $10 mom's gold wedding ring. The baby is mom and her older brother Ralph. Ralph died in a car accident at age 21.
