I spent most of the morning cleaning up my studio. I forgot to take any photos until half way through the process as it was quite a mess.
Here it is after cleaning half of it up.
And after getting it mostly straightened out. My color notebooks are waiting to be sent off for review and the box holds all the pieces that will be hung at the Waterlilies exhibition next week. I’m excited to see my class mates again. They will be here next week for the opening of the show on Thursday. If you are in the Whitefish area, stop by The Purple Pomegranate on Thursday from 6-9 pm. I’ll post photos here next week to show you the exhibition.
Here is “The Kantha Revolution”. I got all three pieces matted today. You can barely see the matte as it is only 1/4″ bigger than the pieces.
I think they look good as a triptych so I will probably donate all three pieces for the auction.
The background was done a long time ago when we played with soy was with my local surface design group.
I have gradually added the Kantha stitching over the last couple of years. This is the only one that has satin stitch added as well. Which one is your favorite?
I also added a sketch of a seed head to one of my previously painted pages in my sketch book. The photo that I used to sketch from showed the seed head in green, but I liked it in brown on this background. Thanks for stopping by and if you’re in the US, I hope you have a good Labor Day weekend.
I really like your triptych. LizSeville.wordpress.com Principally Felt
They are all lovely, but my favorite is the one with the yellow spiral. It seems to come out at you and I love the blue green colors as well. Happy Labor Day! More felting parties this weekend?
Thanks Marilyn, the yellow spiral is raised because of the stitching. Another felting party on Sunday.
I look forward to the next progress report. Have fun! 🙂
It would be hard to choose a favorite, but I agree that the yellow spiral is special. A lot of work goes into all of these, I know.
I really can’t choose a favourite. They go so well together, they make a wonderful tryptich. Love it! I hope the exhibition goes well, it’s always good to catch up with fellow students again so I’m sure you’ll have a great time.
It pleases me to see there are indeed others who can get the workroom into a similar state as mine!! Would you like to pop over and sort mine out? It’s only across the pond! 🙂
I am excited about the exhibition. It will be fun to see everyone again. My room was a big mess after all the painting homework. I would be glad to pop over any time. Can you send your private jet? 🙂
Lovely kantha triptych – I think my favourite is the middle one. Hope the show goes well!
Thanks! I’m looking forward to the show and seeing my class mates again. it will be fun even if no one else shows up 🙂
