Well I haven't been doing any sewing myself lately, but on Friday night I did help the local art community by buying these two peices from my friend Ari! She had an exhibition opening down Freo way, exhibiting 100 46 x 46cm canvas's. 100! So Daz, the girls and I went along. I wanted to buy something for Daz, a lot of art on our walls is my taste, especially the dolls quilts. So he picked the above painting, titled Flight of the Devine Winds. Could be symbollic of the year ahead of us in 2009 if Daz gets accepted into Uni.... I like the blue textured background and in the black is all these tiny detailed dots of white making patterns.
I choose this one for me, to add to my collection of dolls quilts, although its not a dolls quilt, it could be! Ari said to me "what are you getting this one for? You could make it yourself!" And, yes, its free motion stitching on felt with some hand stitching as well, but I loved the looseness of this, it felt free, my work I sometimes feel is too stiff and tight? So some inspiration for me.
