Floating in the cool water this frog keeps a sharp lookout for any unexpected visitors. With his head bobbing above the water and his feet resting amongst his young, he sits like a proud father taking care of his family.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the frog and spawn were achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, fabric malipulation techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the warm frog to the delicate eggs. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
