Winter. It’s been cold out there and there are lots of reasons for staying inside. Mostly I’ve been finishing off projects that have been lying around for too long. I’ve also started a new novel; YA science fiction. More to come on that soon.
‘Times Three’ a new acrylic painting is finished and few more canvases are waiting for me at the Rimbey Art Studio.
At home I’m back working with fabric. This mixed media fabric art started with a print in gray and white. I added appliqued butterflies, branches and quilted leaves, which were then painted with acrylic paint that had been thinned with medium, then heat set with an iron. The whole piece was then attached to stretcher bars, just like a canvas. Here’s a detail of this piece, title “Blue Butterflies”.
