I haven’t uploaded anything for a few days. The weather has been wild and chaotic but I have been in the studio despite the heat and humidity. This huge sheet of white paper has been hanging on the studio wall for several weeks – untouched – finding the courage to begin is sometimes very difficult – progress only seems to happen when you can overcome the fear.
last week I took my sewing machine into the life studio – usually i draw directly onto canvas or linen and then stitch – on thursday I stitched directly onto the canvas – trying to capture movement and feeling – the colour is watered down acrylic applied to the back of the canvas This is the result after several more hours of stitching.
forgot to take photos before I framed these pieces – my apologies for any reflections – both pieces are 40 x40 cm framed
