Thoughts of Summer

Thoughts of Summer

This work began with a portrait of my son, created with free motion stitchery on water soluble fabric.
When I studied this image, I felt that he was in a peaceful place, and with his shades and cap, he was set for 
the fun and adventure of our time together in the cottage in the woods.
I created the scenery through the layering of translucent silk fabrics that I dyed, printed and painted.

The water lilies were elements of photos that were printed on water soluble fabric, added as another layer, then painted, and then free motion stitchery helped to connect all the elements.
