As a member of the Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective we exhibit together throughout the year. We have an upcoming show in December with a Connecticut Landscape theme. The first image that comes to mind is a physical landscape but I wanted to take a different approach. I thought of Connecticut's communities and cultures and eventually settled on Connecticut's people.
Having decided on working with felt I started creating faces using as many different skin tones as possible. I'm still working on the construction of the piece and having fun free-motion quilting the faces. When I'm done there will be about 30 little personalities. The project needs to be ready to hang by December 1st so I should really be working and not blogging right now!
|I'm calling the piece "Facescape"|
Look for "Connecticut Landscapes" opening at the Prospect Library on December 1st and running through the end of the month.
