I realize it is barely summer yet, but this 3D piece says autumn to me. I haven’t titled it…therefore the question mark… I am having a difficult time… I can’t seem to move past the general concept of autumn and on to an appropriate title!
Here is a detail shot of the leaves and grasses.
I used a few different techniques in the construction of the piece. The bust is painted on a textured linen and then quilted. The blue “river” travels down the front and back of the piece, dotted with pearl cotton french knots. (There are times I love to hand embroider…quite relaxing.) The leaves and grasses are painted cotton, as I have done in other dimensional work, but I have shaped the leaves to stand away from the neck.
It might be time for a title…anyone? anyone?? from the studio
