The subtitle of the show is 'glimpses of prairie'. I will still have some prairie vista threadpaintings, but I am excited to display my new work as well. It's kind of embroidery... looks a little like felting and works like an oil painting with each stitch looking like a brushstroke loaded with colour.
|Gathering in progress|
This is a big piece in the style of Where Sunlight Falls (in Edmonton) and will be framed BIG liek that - 12x22". To put a huge horizontal image on my blog will always look teenytiny, but here it is nonetheless. I finished it up yesterday morning.
All I can say is that I want to do more like this! It's big - the work is 14 inches across. Next I think I'll try something with a sky. Chunky yarns might look terrific as clouds and such. I'll have to go shopping first. I really don't own a lot of blue.
Have a great day!
