WOOLIES...Whistlin in the Wind

23.5"w X 32"h
2009

This was my first attempt working with Shiva Paintstiks.  And I loved the way the Paintstiks created the delicate stems, petals and details to contrast with the heavy hand dyed wool flowers and leaves.  Many pastel batiks form the soft background.  Extensive freehand quilting was done with feathers and my signature “Schillig Scribble” quilting.  Hand beading adds final touches.
