This past month has been one devoted to family. We have four families scattered from SC, NC, VA and CA. We usually have them all here at the same time, this time of the year.. The year for the first time we only had three. As family grow they have so many obligations and places to be. We are grateful for time we do have and love every minute. This explains my absence for the past three weeks.
The week before we went to NC to stay with our daughter after she underwent surgery, BTW, that went well, I started a new project. It had me in it's grips immediately. I worked many hours everyday until I had the figure finished.
I then added darker blue to show the folds and wrinkles in the pant legs.
represent it with many different shades of yellow, gold and light brown fabrics. I've also added the shoes in this process.
I'm liking the shirt especially after I painted over some of the extra fabric to create the folds in the shirt. This really helps show the movement as she is walking down the sidewalk. I am also auditing sideway fabric.
I've posted these images on The QuiltArt digest Facebook page and asked for some suggestions, as well as the SAQA Visioning Project blog. I've gotten some good suggestions, some that I'm planning to try.
I also took this with me today to my HiFiber art group meeting and got some even better suggestions. I have to say that from the first cut I made in the fabric I was hooked. I have had so much fun working on this piece.
Unfortunately, I am going to have to put it away while I prepare my upcoming class at J. C. Campbell. More on that later.
