Wool strips on linen backing, 10" x 9"
I'm enrolled in Deanne Fitzpatrick's new online course, "Getting Wild with Style". This piece was created with a Van Gogh influence and my fascination with vast expanses and "big" skies. I love the color of snow on a moonlit night. I might be standing in the darkened room in the farmhouse looking out the window.
The wool for the snow was dyed in a roll. I sandwiched together different colors of wool, rolled them like a jelly roll, and tied it with string. I put the roll in water in the dye pot with soap, put it on the stove, and let the colors bleed out of the pieces. After a while, I added vinegar and the color reabsorbed. I like the result, but I can't replicate it.
This is a journal of drawn, painted, and fiber works. I love color, light, and pattern. I am learning all the time. I enjoy exploring different mediums, but most of my work is in pastel, colored pencil, and fiber. The paintings and drawings are part of my collection unless otherwise noted, and may not be reproduced without permission of the artist.
