Drawing with Thread
Hand embroidery on muslin with acyrlic paint and embossed metal for skull
The left side is based on a left handed drawing in my sketchbook. I left some threads loose to maintain the looseness of the drawing. It's called cat scan because the hair was actually a collage in the sketchbook of a cat scan image.
So I am now a member of the Mad River Valley (love that name lol) chapter of the Embroidery Guild of America. Went to the first meeting held on the front porch of another member in Yellow Springs. I love wrap around porches, so this was a lovely start. It was also lovely to meet some fellow embroiderers and see samples of their work. One of the projects coming up is to create a textile sketchbook (right up my alley) and I can't wait.
