Lately I have really been enjoying working with painted canvas and stitch. This is another collage similar to several that I have made in the past. I have personalized this piece for a good friend who is a potter and fiber artist At Liberty Town Artists Studios. Anna has been so incredibly supportive of my art and we are now working together as workshop co-chairs for the Fiber Arts Guild. Anna has just started to blog and you can find her here. When you visit, be sure to scroll down and see some of her wonderful pottery items and glorious hand woven and hand spun cloth!
Anna has commented several times that she loves the phrase "Scatter Joy" and the bright and bold colors of these pieces. She uses an oak leaf/acorn motif in her work, hence the stamped acorn motif in metallic green and copper in this collage.
The handwork adds extra layers of texture and depth to the piece and I find the whole process so satisfying and therapeutic! Needless to say I will be creating more of these pieces to share!!!
