Growth Rings

Gearing up for Growth Rings exhibition at Dungog in October 2013, I have just finished this piece, having worked on it for over a year (in small bursts at a time).   Watercolour painted background is a new technique I have been exploring, and I do quite like the textural effect created.  Thermofax prints have been added, in addition to machine and hand stitching.   It is as yet unnamed as the image makes me think of a few titles.   Love to know what you think of this piece and what your eyes are seeing. Image

    Beautiful stuff. It looks like you are using rust for color also?

  3. Pamela says:

    Yes, rusted fabric is also used on this piece. It is great fun to make, but needs selective choice for incorporating into machined work.

    I agree. It’s a great effect but could be overused.

    This is beautiful Pamela.I love the contrast of the light blue (makes me think of sky) and dark red.

    I love this watercolour painted background with stitched free contour lines here and there. If it is a life journey, it’s very deep!
