Urban Textures 1
Well, back to work now that the arm is mostly healed. The exhibition in Edmonton is coming up in the new year so it is time to get working on pieces based upon the historical district in downtown Winnipeg. I am concentrating on old signs painted onto the sides of buildings, so going for the effect of layering, erosion, faded beauty...
At the moment I am pulling out fabrics and threads for colours to work in; checking out techniques to portray the time worn images; and stitches to use in the work. Busy times ahead!
