The Amber Waves

I finished a large threadpainting last week that I'm very excited to show you!  I created it solely based on the patterns in a piece of stripy batik fabric. 


After nearly a decade of threadpainting the prairies, I figured I could follow my heart on this one.  With the exception of my mini threadpaintings, I recreate landscapes from the inspiration of my images and sketches.  They are always real places with real stories behind them.  I've made several hundred mini landscapes also from my heart that I am quite happy with, so I thought I would just go where the wind took me.

It measures 5x14" and is now beautifully displayed in a 10x20" frame.

!  Isn't that a great story?  I love how this one worked out.  I adore the wind in it too.  It's free motion machine stitched and there's loads of handwork in the foreground.  This piece is not available for purchase yet.  It's waiting on a jury selection to see if it will be given a new home.  I'm not sure how long that will take, but I'll keep you posted!  : )

Another beautiful piece! I don't always use photos for my landscape pieces either. The Newfoundland scenery is so unique. I have to get back creating my landscapes - when my new studio is finished. Have a great creative week.

This is so wonderful Monika. How exciting to synthesize the thousands of pictures you've taken and to create your own landscape.
