Sunday Afternoon

Kathy asked in a previous comment how this was made. It is sheer fabric attached to a frame then matte medium was applied to both the front and back. When that dried I went to work with acrylic paints, dynaflow, rubbing alcohol and water. Then I created folds that I stitched together. Now the free motion quilting is progressing with more to be done. This is very sensuous when seen in person. I think I will try to create more of these pieces and submit them to a gallery for their consideration. I doubt they'll have anything similiar.

Denise - you just amaze me with your creations!!! Even when I read how you did it - I can't think "oh I'd like to try that" because you are so amazingly gifted and skilled!

I love that Lupine piece at the top too!!! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!!!

This is gorgeous, Denise! How I wish I'd paid attention when my mother tried to teach me to sew! :)
