TreesThis piece measures 64 inches wide and 26 inches in height.
The size was determined by the space in the client's home, she specifically wanted a 'painting' to hang over her bed. All she asked for was trees, and left the rest up to me.
|Detail: I worked in layers with procion MX dyes. The layers were painted on with brushes. I created the resists with masking tape (for the trunks and the clouds).|
|After the dyes were set and dried, I added details with free motion machine stitching. I deliberately did not add batting and quilt since this was intended to be a painting. I added stabiliser to the back to support the stitching.|
