And indeed needing a touch of bright sky too. The weather here in the Midlands has been quite grim; dark grey skies and rain; that good summer has spoiled us. I am, however, enjoying working with bright colour and pattern, and have a few more pieces from the series From the Bright Sky laid down. There will be twelve altogether, so one more to go.
It’s been a busy time with teaching and ageing parents, so work has slowed down a little, but here are the latest pieces. I have a plan to put them in a book together with the Found pieces, and one or two other pieces of new work, which I will probably and somewhat unimaginatively entitle ‘New Work’, unless something more exciting comes up. I can think of any amount of esoteric wordage, but nothing that would cover several pieces of work, in an understandable way, but does that matter? I will think on’t.
Below are the latest pieces, all about A2 in size, constructed from appliquéd painted, printed and dyed fabrics, with some papers and metallic fabrics too.
I’ll be adding machine stitch next. I’m thinking wave lengths and undulating diagonals; perhaps that could be the title of the book…
