happy trees

Here's my little something for the Bob Ross tribute show at Stained Skin.


fabric collage + beads & sequins and a little embroidery, 24" x 20"
closeups:



(yuk, I need a new camera!)
For the grass, I cut up this awesome green vintage coat that I have been debating whether to repurpose for years now. I've owned this thing forever and never wore it, so I figured I might as well cut it! My sucky camera just did not do it justice, so here is a scan of the fabric.

I wish I could have worn this coat but it was just so impractical with it's shortish sleeves made for a time when ladies apparently always wore long gloves. It fit really nicely otherwise and was pretty cool. I should have at least taken a picture of me wearing it. Damn. Oh well, now it won't be hard to cut into it further when I want to use it to make some creatures!

Anyway, I am going to add more details to this thing when I get it back next month - more animals and flowers and bushes and stuff. I need to do something fun with the frame too. Maybe paint it red? I just ran out of time.

My husband drew this comic for the show and I thought it was great so I wanted to show it off here too.
