Pink Perfection

I didn't have a lot of time in the studio today but I did finish cutting and fusing the camellia I worked on Monday.

I have lots of painting that needs done to get dept and define the petals.   But that will come another day.

The background is so important to my flower pieces.  I always try several different pieces of fabric, usually hand dyes.

This is another hand dyed piece I tried and I think this is the one I'm going to use. 

I cut three of the leaves today but I'm not really happy with the color.  I think I will go a little lighter.  I always have to play.  If I'm not happy with a piece I cut out, out it comes.  I can always use it in another piece or cut it up for a smaller item. 

 The photograph was taken in my front yard.  The camellia is called Pink Perfection.  I angled the camera so that I would see the beautiful blue sky in the background.

I may even get some time in the studio tomorrow.  Not seeing any of my family tomorrow so I can't think of anything else I would rather do.
