i am trying to learn how to put texture into paintings. this one has torn strips of newspaper under the oil paint. there are so many fun things to play with in my studio...maybe i should stay in there all day!
this is a piece of white cotton that i kind of tie-dyed with fabric paint. then i used a tiny #9 needle and quilting thread to follow the patterns of the paint. very soothing work. so while i was feeling so zen, i decided to stitch a tao saying backwards. geez!
