Luscious watery layers suggest a dreamy landscape
While the Sky Dreams
Mixed Media textile Collage

Through the portal...what worlds are there beyond our seeing?

"While the Sky Dreams" is a landscape/dreamscape composed in three panels, created independently and stitched to a canvas backer. It is created with archival acrylic paints and mediums on fabric. The images are created through a combination of monotype printing and direct painting on fabric. The inspiration for this piece began with the luscious watercolor-wash appearance of the fabric pieces that became the sky. They suggested to me an imaginary landscape. In the foreground, I enjoyed creating rich opaque colors and the contrasts in textures.

More patterns of machine stitching highlight sections of the work. (Zoom in to see the textures!)
