Precious Water

In the spring of 2000, I dreamed of a yellow piece that spoke to me of the continual droughts that threaten so many places on our planet. Our fresh water is precious and limited. This is a worldwide problem that affects us all which is why the images represent four different continents. "Precious Water" is painted with dyes using six values of yellow, then quilted with over 200 different colors of thread.
