The Thing with Feathers
by Karen Marchetti

About The Thing with Feathers
The dark sorrowful hand: Although it is full of fear, sorrow, pain, etc., it still has hope (feathers and swirls stitched in dark charcoal thread).  The hand is reaching for HOPE (the thing with feathers), in its reaching it is emitting more hope (the quilted feathers).  The feathers, as well as the swirls behind the birds, are a pastel variegated thread (little glimmers of hope).  And, although the sky is dark and dismal, there is so much movement, the singing.
