Lodgepole Pines



Lodgepole Pines is my most recent work.  It is 14" x 21 1/2".  It was inspired by another piece of Ellen Anne Eddy's fabric.  It looked like I imagine a Canadian winter scene.  In person, the piece has a more smoky blue-green cast which gives it more life than this picture.  I'm definitely on a roll with featuring pine trees in my work.  There is a hypnotic relaxation I find in doing the free-motion work.

Stunning Roberta, the background is so mysterious and it does look like a cold Canadian winter day :)

Your threadpainting is always beautiful, Roberta. I would love to see this in person, as I know that photos never do justice to our fabrics. You are always number one with me. I love everything you do.

This is beautiful -- it really captures a chilly winter day.

I'm inspired by all your thread work. I've got to get started doing instead of admiring. Thank you for the impetus to do just that. I love making any piece with trees as a focus so this has given me some thoughts.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. And yes, artists are storytellers. We tell our stories visually, rather than through the written form. Anything that can add to the story is important.
