Remembering Evora on Earth Day

Evora's Earth, 85 x 96 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2001.

Evora’s Earth was made over a 14-month period. It honors my mother Evora Hicks. It also is my constant reminder of days growing up in Crossett, Arkansas when things were simpler, but filled with laughter and love.

As we pause to celebrate Earth Day, we should all remember that every day is Earth Day. It is about respecting and loving the place we live, as well as,  the people with whom we share our space. I hope my future granddaughter will create a beautiful remembrance quilt of the days she spent with  India and me.
