Tree Fragment Series

I created the first two of these “Tree Fragments” quite a while ago and then they just hung around the studio being UFO’s. I was invited to include some of my work in the “Uncommon Threads” exhibit at the Bigfork Cultural Arts Center. It is the same time as the exhibit for Whitefish Gallery Nights that I posted about here. So I needed different work for the Bigfork show. I decided to create one more piece to make this a series. I have created a post about that piece over on The Felting and Fiber Studio which will publish on August 13th. But I will show you the other two pieces here.

This first one is called “Chemo Leaves”. I used a rust printed background and covered a 12″ x 12″ canvas. This pattern was created from the curtains when my husband was taking chemotherapy several years ago. This is a combination of printed, screen printed and machine stitched felt as well as ice dyed cotton fabric.

The second piece is called Aspen Leaves and is created from printed and stenciled felt, iced dyed cotton fabric and machine stitched and painted silk. The background is an eco printed piece from my friend Paula. Thanks Paula!

I tried to fit these into some frames but it didn’t work. So I think they will stay unframed. Now I just need to finish up the backs and put on a hanger.

  1. Love these. Looking forward to seeing the next one (in TFFS) to complete the series. Please show all of them again when you have the backs finished.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
