the paint goes on

After spending two hours painting tiny lines with a tiny brush I'm ready to run and holler!

A post by artist Ann Brauer has given me the kick in the pants in the direction of (returning to) making pieces measured in feet instead of inches.  I called the sewing machine doctor and made an appointment for my Janome.

The one piece I can see sneaking out from a high shelf in the studio is insisting on some exposure and some company. Look close - there are hearts in the " Pirate Circus!


  1. LOVE this bottom piece!

  2. SWASH buckling Babe!!! Swathes and swashes of washes and waves, wow :)

  3. Hi Deb! I just found you somehow, and I am so glad I did! I absolutely LOVE your work. Is this gorgeous piece for sale? What are the dimensions? How was this made? techniques? fabrics? Your work/art is amazing! kathy

  4. Kathye...almost all my work is for sale. And many thanks. Are you asking about the unfinished one on top or Pirate Circus?

  5. Deb, I am asking about Pirate Circus. LOVE the colors! Is it painted? Is this a single layer or does it have a backing and batting? What are the dimensions and price -- same questions as above.
    Thank you!


Tell me everything!

stitching here and thinking elsewhere

 This piece is evolving around the theme of secret messages. Evolving because I am winging every bit of it. Even the basted substrate clot...

Play it again Sam.
