It's my first piece of 2013, it's my first piece in fulfillment of my vision of the kind of work I've decided to do, and it looks (even unfinished) EXACTLY the way I imagined it.
So, are you ready?! Let's go! More after the jump...
When I first started painting this fabric, BSP said to me "Why are you painting over that nice fabric?" and I thought "because *I* don't like this fabric!" - but it just goes to show - different strokes for different folks!
Anyway! I quilted it (there's a subtle wing pattern there if you look closely); and then I gessoed it.
And then I painted over it with the paints pictured above - mostly full strength, but some thinned a wee bit.
This is just a sneak peek 'cuz I forgot to take a picture of it before I started adding stuff to it.
More on Wednesday...
