The Kantha Revolution

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.

Messy StudioHere it is after cleaning half of it up.

Cleaner StudioAnd 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.

Kantha Revolution

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.

Kantha Revolution - Many Circles

I think they look good as a triptych so I will probably donate all three pieces for the auction.

Kantha Revolution - Green Wheel

The background was done a long time ago when we played with soy was with my local surface design group.

Kantha Revolution - Yellow Spiral

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?

Sketch Book
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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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? 🙂

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
