Printing on fabric is "interesting" especially when the ink cartridges love to be cleaned
more often than I care to do.
But the images on fabric . . . well, they're just too divine! The softness of fabric, torn edges, loose threads combined with machine stitching is something I've missed doing.
This piece is without a purpose other than it gave me something to think about rather
than the usual thoughts.
The piece was started at least 4 years ago with photos taken in France
and Italy including one of
Monet's Garden. the water lily below.
The recent additions are photos taken in my garden, not quite as exquisite as Monet's
but the traveling was easy.
Two images of the Calla Lily stitched over an image of a painted wall taken at Hotel Villa Stanley
Florence, Italy. The photo of a rooftop was also shot at the Villa.
The background fabric is a discharged screen print.
