This is known as a spot sampler. The name references Ohio’s State motto. The background fabric was dyed for another project that never happened, but was the perfect size and background color for this piece. Most of the flora and fauna are found in our yard and I took many pictures for reference. The shape of Ohio contains a yellow heart right in the location of Yellow Springs, our personal heart of it all.
