This is a piece that has been hanging in my stitching space for a very long time waiting…. It’s a mixed media piece, a combination of painting ( the sunset,) transfer (the poem…I must go down to the see again….) and stitching it all together on fabric. Last night I decided it is time to figure out how to finish it. That’s my project for today.
Meanwhile, a couple other WIP’s (works in process) in my stitching space…. a couple small abstract wall quilts ….
The faces were inspired by something posted on Jude’s Spirit Cloth blog. I want to embroider something on the brown strip on the top piece, on the lower piece I used a bleach pen to discharge the word create.
Reading what I just wrote about these makes me think… I need to clarify abstract. I call these abstract because there is something that has been abstracted, the face. If the face weren’t on the piece it would actually be non-representational art. However, it seems to me that most folks call all of this type of work abstract so I,’m conflicted, should I call it what it is or what most folks recognize.
