AEDM Day 18


Recently I've been working with sheer fabrics, but this morning I put together this landscape, inspired by some rich colored remnants I came across in a box while cleaning my studio. The sky fabric is hand dyed, but I can't remember where I got it. That's unusual for me, since I usually remember where most of my fabrics came from - even those I acquired 30 years ago!! I love my collection of materials and each one pretty much brings back some kind of memory. I do recall the deep purple nearest the sky was part of a blouse I wore, which became stained. The front fabric was purchased recently and I folded it over a piece of thin batting to balance the textured selvages of the other fabrics.

I'm happy with how this piece is coming along. My instinct is to add some trees, but then again, maybe the movement in the sky colors supplies it with enough detail.

What do you think?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Neat. Looks like a Scottish heather field at dusk!

It's lovely as is! But trees might be nice, too!

The lilac sky is beautiful Judy. I think it looks nice as it is but maybe you could add something shadowy to the foreground or in the sky! The colours are very calming and make me feel dreamy! x

I love it just as it is--especially how the selvages look like grasses. It's gorgeous!

Your work is so incredible. I catch my breath every time a see a new piece of yours. This reminds me of heather growing on a Scottish heathland. It is so romantic and represents a peaceful escape.
Have you been to bonnie Scotland?
Thank you for your thoughtful ccomment.

This is gorgeous Judy. That sky is amazing. I'm not sure if you want to play with it or not....it's already so perfect just the way it is.

I like the texture and "dimensionality" of it. That is enough for me!

What a great idea too to use different types of fabric here-they almost look like suede.

Dear Judy it is certainly beautiful and so perfect as it is. A lovely piece indeed. I love your work! :)

It has been some busy days for me as of late, and I see I have missed a few post and must catch up right away. I love your "wee sketch" in your previous post, so sweet. :)

Enjoy a most beautiful weekend my friend.
