texture - sea and shore

Every where I look I see something that I would like to capture in cloth; in this instance - a coral reef, its marking light and the trunk of a fallen coconut tree .

stitchers plus

I went to stitchers plus yesterday - not everyone was there - however, i missed last months meeting and it was good to catch up. Apart from a bit of drawing when i was away last month i haven't actually done much.

I have been think though and yesterday I was able to blow up a photo and draft a basic cartoon of a photo of my sister and I which I propose to work in canvas.



This is the photo which I printed out in black and white:




Here is the cartoon:






I selected threads for the skin tones, marked the canvas and attached it to stretcher bars. I should have a little show and tell by next month

WRAP at Fountain Court, NSW Parliament House






WRAP unwrap officially opened at Fountain Court in the Parliament House of NSW last Tuesday 7 July 2009 . It runs for about 3 weeks. It was lovely to see all the quilts again. I haven't seen them since the opening in Wagga Wagga almost a year ago. It probably sounds foolish but it was like catching up with old friends. The idea of the exhibition took off about 18 months prior to the Wagga opening and I hadn't seen any of the works since then.

I went back to Parliament house today and took a few photos of the quilts and of Fountain Court. It is a lovely spot and has a lot of light coming through the courtyard that holds the fountain - it is open to the sky. And it is very quiet … but comfortable with it.
