Here is today's new piece. It is a combination of a hand drawn eye from my class last week along with hand painted fabrics and hand dyed fabrics. It's a weird collage but I like it. The painted bits are all from one fabric that I painted. They look so different when cut apart. I like how the blue green background sits quietly by while everything else struggles to find it's place. Both the white and the yellow want to win and the other painted pieces are sitting in various layers of the mid ground.
The quilting is all simple; top stitching along the edges of the shapes, stippling in the background, outlining in the eye and herky jerkey on the eyebrow. I now wish that I had put something sheer over the whole thing and ripped it away to clearly reveal just the eye. Maybe next time.
