More Of The Same...



I was talking about cutting up pieces of hand painted fabric and working with them at a small size, last month, sometime. I thought I'd show you two more pieces, both from the same piece of fabric. It never ceases to amaze me how different pieces can turn out, even though the same original starting colours and textures are the same. The top piece is foiled, as well as stitched, the bottom just stitched. I dyed some turquoise fabric yesterday to use to back these pieces, as most of them seem to have some turquoise stitching in them. The addition of the fabric makes them sing.

Below, there is a larger piece, which is made with lutradur, but which carries the ideas on from some of the smaller pieces. Three Red Dots is related to Those Postcards. Its colours are a bit more definite in real life, the photograph was taken in bright sunlight...which is all we have here, today, sunshine and heat. Suddenly, it's spring going on summer, and I'm not complaining.
