Gina Rossi’s sprout for the week was to paint from an embroidered piece this week.
I had no embroidery in sight, though when I finished my timed sketch Mitchell
reminded me of several wonderful fabric samples we have: oops.
I have a lot of friends dealing with darkness of late: depression and loss, loneliness.
I’ve been thinking about what burdens the heart, which prompted the words.
I am about to conserve a wonderful 18th century tapestry for a client, and
thought to paint one of the edges, as the flowers are so sweet. I didn’t try to make realistic stitches, but just add lots of texture. Timed 10-minute sketch.
