Beyond Abstract

I enjoy things that are cluttered, can you tell. This is paint and a lot of small paper pieces cut from magazines.. I want to do more, also like painting with the palette knife, just a change in my art desires.

A face of fiber

total fabric, created as in the previous post, 12 different fabrics.

This fabric just said hair, use this now.  I start with a factory pied of quilted fabric, then add some back ground choices,  then cut the face and neck shape, find little bits for eyes, pupils separate from the whites of eyes, often I use the wrong side of fabric, then some hair or head dress of sorts. I cut several mouth shapes, then start to sew, lots of back and forth sewing, then more additions, finally lots of top stiches.  Feel free to ask questions.  will answer in next post or an email if you leave it.
