This is my new piece, it's about 12"x13" (30x33cm).
This lady is coming home with the morning star... who knows why... perhaps she comes back from her friend but she could also have worked all night. So different interpretations and I keep thinking about each of them. The sun is up, the birds sing, the morning star is still there.
I did the background with silk paint on polyfelt. I loved the result. The paint gathers on the borders and it dries nicely.
I used some beads I bought on my visit to Traunstein in Germany at the shop of one very interesting felt artist, Barbara Huber. The name of the shop is "Unikat" but I couldn't find a web address...
Gaby Tisch, a German textile artist, who makes the most beautiful dyed fabric and threads, was in my workshop and we tried to combine dyed fabric and embellisher. This piece is a result of this.
