Moonlet and String Diamonds

Finished two new pieces for an art fundraiser at the Compass Center for Women and Families in Chapel Hill.

Moonlet, 2015. Watercolor, hand embroidery.

I'm enjoying painting some patchwork backgrounds and some space-inspired scenes.

String Diamonds, 2015. Watercolor and hand embroidery.

The pieces for this show had to be 5 x 7 inches. Both pieces felt like studies at that size; I'd like to try to make both of these pieces on a much larger scale.

Painting patchworks.

I'm also working on some more muted color background watercolors. But for now, lots of color seems to have captured my imagination.

WIP. Size 12 Pearl Cotton.

Fighting against the gray days of winter. I just love color and pattern.

  2. Wow! I love the whole concept! I have done embroidery over painted/dyed fabric, but it sure doesn't look like this beauty! Truly inspiring, and I know the fundraiser will be blessed by this too.

    1. Thank you so much, Kim! Jonesing to work on some more!

  3. These are beautiful. What kind of paper did you use?
