character studies, portraits in stitch
visionary - a character study in embroidery.... a new work, intricate with a touch of gold.... I am particularly happy with her expression. The face is so important to me. If I start a new figure and the face does not 'speak' to me I have to abandon and begin again - that's just the way it is. The many faces of her are quite special, I hope you think.
china blue - also a character study, slightly smaller yet very detailed with her blue and white.... inspired by a classic blue and white you might find on tea cups, or delicate fabrics....but with my own way of telling the story, here the flowers have faces....
( these two new embroidery works for my shop update tomorrow.....)
