“If you’re any kind of artist, you make a miraculous journey, and you come back and make some statements in shapes and colors of where you were.” -Romare Bearden
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
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.
