|Spring Thaw, made in 2006, 73 cm x 77.5 cm|
commercial fabric, organza, crinoline, gesso,
hand and machine stitched
(the cut out parts look pink here but are actually see-through)
It is a piece I originally did not like. It just didn't SAY anything. I had it sitting there for about 3 years and finally decided to play with it.
I quilted it heavily. Still not great.
I painted it with gesso. Getting better.
I cut it up randomly (that took courage!) and sewed it back together in a different way.
Now, I love it!
