She Was Almost One of Us II Detail

I am reminded by this photo of a joke about a man who had spent over 90 years of his life in a small New England town, having moved there as a child. His tombstone read, "He was almost one of us." As a longtime resident of a small Kentucky town, I often knew the feeling of being an outsider, from away.This is the second in a series of fabric renditions of this photo.

Techniques: Inkjet photo transfer on silk, thread painted and machine quilted.
