Spring actually!

Finally it is here! Took quite long this time, don't you think?  But anyway - welcome spring! This is a fragment of my newest textile artwork - "Spring landscape". It is 21.5 x 18.5 in and there is a lot going on in it. First greens and blooms:   Windy sky and tall grasses: The colors are warm and cozy. In fact it started from the colors - I wanted them all but in a soft, warm light. So I hand dyed all sorts of beige tones as a base and then added layers of greens, reds, blues or purples: And now it seems pretty close to the real light we've got this spring 🙂 And, just for experiment, I created the print from this piece in opposite, cold palette: It is fun but I need a sunlight and warmth so couldn't stand working with these colors for a long 🙂 In the meantime I made more colorful textile landscapes, smaller in size and suitable for framing. They are all in my shop now so go and see them HERE. But most of all, enjoy the spring!

Spring is coming!

Wake up, Spring is coming! Are you ready?

I hope so, but when in need for additional impulse to feel the change of seasons here I bring you some inspiration 🙂

How about botanical textile art? At least "botanical" in feel.  Here is my "Botanical blues in the kitchen garden".

Bursting with floral energy this piece evolved from the same little teapot you know from my previous post (HERE).  I described the making process in my newsletter (join us if you fancy HERE) so now I will show you what came next. One of my early viewers jokingly asked if she could get coffee with cherry tart instead of morning tea. Well, the seed was planted and "Botanical coffee in the garden" was born. Hope you like it, Jackie 🙂 But after coffee mug I wanted a tea cup. With herbal tea 🙂 So here it is - "Herbal tea in the garden", the last one (as for now) in this botanical series: And I'm pretty sure you now believe me that Spring is just around the corner 🙂 All three pieces are in similar sizes (approx. 17 x 20 in), mostly appliqued and embroidered (with no batting). And here they are together relaxing after photo session 🙂 They are for sale but only the blue one is available in my SHOP now, the rest will follow during the weekend. Of course there is also their printed version:

available HERE.

 

Now it's time for Spring cleaning and... fresh new projects!
