While I was churning the studio for those lost or imaginary canvases I found the piece below squashed between the pages of a drawing pad.
|"Silkwinds" 2010 (13.5"x16")|
This was an experiment using silk gauze dyed with Colorhue silk dyes that were a gift. The base is some kind of poly that looks like linen with a piece of warm and natural cotton batting underneath to give the stitches a little bite. No backing yet.
I would do stitching things a little differently I think, but it's made me long to work with transparent color again in any medium.
I'm going to mount this one to a canvas also and it will be the next piece up for silent auction.
