Illustration Friday - plain



cotton fabric, hand-dyed wool felt, acrylic ink, stamped letters and acrylic paint on 6" x 6" stretched canvas

I printed the pear (yes, a real pear!) with a matte acrylic paint and the leaf with a metallic acrylic paint for the contrast in sheen.

Working on these small canvases has been an interesting experiment and I like the direction I'm heading in. There's something to this journaling thing...

really nice! I always love when lettering in incorporated in an art piece. I also like the stitching. I can't sew to save my life!

Being a retired quilter (due to my art) I can really appreciate this piece. It's wonderful!

My husband ate the pear! I prefer bananas, but they're harder to print.

I really like the combination of textures of the paint on the fabric. Working small is interesting isn't it? I've been doing postcard sized work for the past year, and it's fun to see how different they are from bigger work.

I really do love the depth in your work. This is a lovely piece.

As an aside, there must be something in the air -- I used a star fruit last week as a stamp for my weekly journal!
