Calm Reflection

Calm Reflection, 38 x 45 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2009.

I think one of the most important character traits of a mediator or a hearing officer is the ability to remain calm when chaos is swirling all around you.  

Calm Reflection is a quilt I made to remind me to maintain a calm spirit. Although this quilt was purchased by a collector, I think of it often. 

This quilt also reminds me to be patient. It was quilted by hand, which takes a very long time. Patience is valuable in mediations as well. When everyone is tired and ready to leave, having the fortitude to remain and try one last time is usually what gets the case resolved. 

Animated personalities work in some situations, but as for me, I think calm reflection works best.
