This series was begun several years ago when Irvin participated in a tapestry exhibit that required a slightly smaller format than he normally weaves. For his more traditional pieces, Irvin usually creates the design for the piece right on the loom as he is weaving it... but for these modern pieces he makes a sketch and draws it onto the warp to use as a cartoon to guide him. This piece has commercial indigo blue as a background and naturally dyed yellow, oranges, gold, and light blue included in its design. It uses mixed dyes, which means that at least some of these yarns are from natural dyes, and some of these yarns were hand dyed or commercially dyed. It was woven by Irvin Trujillo who is a seventh-generation weaver, 2007 NEA National Heritage Fellow, and recurring Spanish Market top award winner. It measures approximately 48 by 36 inches and comes ready for mounting on the wall.
