Sailor's farewell

by Kit Kemp

Embroidered by hand on a seafoam linen base

"A girl in a yellow dress waves goodbye to her sailor boy with her pink handkerchief. He’s out of sight, but we see the marvels she imagines he’ll encounter on his voyage: a raft with a dog and a flag; a tropical island with a hut and a palm tree; an octopus; a spouting whale; a guy — is it our sailor? — in a vintage deep-sea-diving suit and a funky little submarine."
