Out of my journey this year came new inspiration and new work. This is one of the pieces that will be at the Uncommon Threads Wearable Art Show in St Charles, IL.
Words, a story somewhat obscured by exuberant paint, heart and sparkle, and words of strength….. A mixed media on a stylish garment.
And the inspiration (below). A mixed media layering of paint and all kinds of papers on wood panel (18inch x 18inch). We distressed and glued and painted and dug and sanded and out of a mess came a composition. Maybe like LIFE……messy, layered, patina’d and somehow a whole.
Done in Bibby Gignilliat’s class. A fantastic class and thank you to Bibby for the opportunity to attend and learn. You are a great teacher! What a healing time it was for me. Thank you.
