New Work - Heavy Metal 2

20 H x 61.5W You can click on the horizontal art quilt to see it larger
. Right side portion actually zips off the larger portion of the art quilt. It could be hung both vertically and horizontally. Fabric collage on wool felt with metal embellishments, screen, a variety of fabrics...from cotton to silks. What we keep to remind us who we are. I also did some block printing with the red spirals. And then I got out the Shiva Paintsticks! Oh what fun using them in a non-traditional way by making portions of the art quilt look old and weathered. The metallic sticks have a magic all their own when drawn on fabrics with texture. There are words spelled out with letter beads, since that is sort of my trademark.
