new work - new approaches.
I am working on a new series. The focus is the five Elements of Fire, Earth, Water, Wood, and Metal. I hope to develop a number of ideas I have for expressing these concepts.

I've not worked with tulle much before. This painted piece has been layered with 10 different colors of tulle cut into rectangles and placed randomly with lots of overlap. Wanting to maintain the transparency, I did not fuse the tulle (as I have in the past).

The subtle shifts in color and shadow don't show up much in the photo. I'm contemplating using paintsticks to create more subtle shadows and light. I'll probably trim and bind it later today. It is about 59" wide.

We have beautiful sunny mild weather today and I think I will set up for fabric painting outside! I'll indulge my muse for the afternoon!

Cynthia, this is beautiful! I wish I could see it in person, I'm sure the textures are fantastic.

Hope you had a fun day dyeing.
