We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Finished piece - Closed door1

The barn doors of the local farm proved to be an interesting source, below is my first finished piece with a small closeup sample and the final piece. I went on to produce a second piece based on the same barn door which I have posted for interest as the technique I was trying needed more exploration - (I'm not getting ahead for the next piece, I'll work on something different for the April submission!) I have to say though that I will keep working with this technique until I feel it has run its course.......

  1. I like the peeling paint effect you got!

  2. I like your colors and your beautiful stitching reminds me of the wood grain. The piece definitely has a peeling paint effect. Your use of color and shape add so much dimension. I feel like I can reach in through several layers!

  3. Jean, I would like to know more about your process in making this lovely piece and about the fabrics that you used.I can see foiling and do I see sheers?
