Artwork Interpretation: "Colorful Pinwheels"

Cindy based her rain barrel design on a quilt she made for her daughter. This time she chose some eye-popping colors and made each square unique. Cindy believes it represents the dynamic personalities in our lives. The golden threads symbolize how we are stitched together and held there by our heartstrings.
