Sweet Suites

I have been working !!!
There are two things I like to do art-wise. Sew and paint. My mixed media textiles do that. 
I sew pieces of cotton duck together to create the base, add layers of gel medium and paint 
and then add the photo copies to the base. Then more glazes, paint sticks and whatever 
else will add to the story I want to tell.
But what if I left out the photo copies and accented the sewing?
Made them not just a painting but a textile. 
Mounted them on a stretcher but with some thread work? 
And made them small and affordable?
Called them Sweet Suites?

  1. Ah, yes, the "what if's"...which only comes from working and playing. Good job! This looks great, and glad you are working away...
