Commissioned Thread Painting

Today I finished a thread painting of the Keswick River in autumn which was commissioned this summer. My process is to paint the background and then enhance the detail by adding texture using the needle on my sewing machine like a paint brush. 

The first photo shows the scene as I finished the painting and the second reveals the finished piece before it goes to the framer for stretching, matting and framing.

 

 

Artist in Residence for Fredericton Arts Alliance

I was very pleased to learn that I had been chosen for a Fredericton Arts Alliance 1 week residency in the Casemates at the Garrison District in downtown Fredericton New Brunswick.  My week will be July 2-8 with the Casemates being open 10 am to 5 pm daily.  The theme for this year’s residencies is the Saint John river.  Beginning with  my own photograph I will make the drawing, transfer it to fabric, paint the fabric and then stitch using my sewing machine and  free motion embroidery to add texture and dimension  to betray this National Historic site which means ” good and beautiful ” river. I hope many will visit during the week to see the progress.
