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.

A Dazzling of Sunlight

A Dazzling of Sunlight

Summer? What summer? We don't seem to have had one, here in the Cotswolds. Well, perhaps one day in early July. This “hot” piece of glittering suns must be me thinking back to our Southern France summers.
The background strips show blue skies and golden days. The suns are appliqu├ęd in various fabrics, silk, batik, hand dyes, synthetics and some are embroidered with seed stitching. Each sun is beaded and surrounded with golden metallic rays. The background is machine quilted with rayon thread.
Now on to the Autumn piece, with falling leaves.

  1. Stunning colours Elaine - we are down in the south of France at the moment and can confirm what strong colours there are compared to the UK this summer.
