Domestic Art

Mother Canada front detail

Today we installed eleven pieces of my art work in Whitefish Falls for the distinguished artist part of the LaCloche show. All but one use stitching as the main technique.

Before we left, we had to wait for this two sided piece to come out of the dryer. It took courage to toss months of work into the laundry machines but I do love how the linen fabric has shrunk and acquired an 'old' texture and the red cotton threads took on a more interesting line.

Congratulations for your work! Techniques are simple and complex at the same time ... They require patience!

Yes, Luisa , I am using embroidery stitches that children learn. Repeated over and over. Patience is a good word. Better than obsessive. Thanks for visiting.
