Art Every Day, Wednesday, Nov 13, 2013,
Here is my latest piece. It began with a piece of fabric that was dyed using the deconstructed silk screening technique. Once I ripped it to size I then stamped it with one of my bird stamps using bold, black paint. I love the juxtaposition of the three birds and the high contrast of black on white with the cool greens and blues showing through in the background.
I kept the quilting simple, outlining and inlining the birds, quilting the grid design in the upper with straight lines and stippling around and between all of the colored bits in the lower right. I really, really like the piece. It's simple yet complicated, mod with a vintage feel and bold but not in your face, everything I look for in a piece of art.
