“This painting represents six generations of women in my family,” says Leslie Lambert Redhead. “The quilt was made by my great grandmother for my grandmother’s wedding. The hands on the quilt are those of my mother, sister, and her daughter (my niece); the baby’s hands represent the future generation of women (my niece was pregnant at the time this painting was made). I started this painting with masking and then poured the watercolor, as I do with most of my paintings. Then I finished off with brushwork.”
