I started a new pinterest board, “Human,” featuring portraits and figures in drawings, paintings and/or photography. Click to view larger images, check captions for artist information. See many more here: https://www.pinterest.com/jennabdecker/human/
The new embroidered paintings are now available in my Etsy Shop. Check them out here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MusicalColorStudio?section_id=14226717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_2
“That was the first time I’ve drawn anything in seven years. I feel like I had been held under water, and someone finally reached down, and pulled my head up so I could take a breath.”
Graffiti artist Tony “TEMPT” Quan could no longer create his art, let alone communicate with his family…Mick Ebeling was determined to help the artist accomplish both of these things. Thus, the EyeWriter was born — a pair of glasses with hardware that allows the wearer to draw and communicate … just by using their eyes.
Title: Never-Played Symphony
Medium: watercolor and stitched fibers (cotton thread) on paper
Paper size: 8×10 inches
Another new mixed-media painting! I first paint with watercolors, then hand stitch the paper in a very time-intensive process. The result is an abstract watercolor of flowing and blended colors surrounded by geometric embroidery in 3 colors (tan, purple/mauve, and teal). The beauty lies in the contrast between the organic, fluid layers of watercolor versus the linear patterns of the stitches.
