Growing up in Oregon, I could always get a good idea of how to dress for the day by just looking outside. Generally, the sunnier it was the warmer it was. But when I moved to Minnesota, that was no longer a good barometer. I still don’t understand how it can be brilliantly sunny and 2 degrees, even though that is a regular occurrence. But since the entire world is so cold, everything glistens in the ice that covers it.

This artwork was made with 57 colors of embroidery floss. Individual pieces were glued to the background surface one by one and pushed into place with tiny scissors and an X-acto knife.
