When I paint with Acrylics on canvas I use a technique of removing paint and building up layers.
I use old cotton bed sheets I save.
This 20X20 piece of cotton bed sheet had the best colors.
I looked at it all last summer thinking of what I saw.
In September I sat down at the sewing machine
and free hand added lines of threads
to bring out the landscape in my mind.
Tree's, a pond and sky emerged from the rag.
I highlighted with Derwent color pencils.
A pastoral setting emerged from the cotton.
This was the first piece sold in our Art League's fall Art Show.
An artist bought the cloth painting for a Christmas gift for a relative.
