Painted Peltex Experiments


This is a piece I have been puttering with...I finally got sick of it and decided to call it done. I painted directly on Peltex with water soluble oil pastels, a very wet and messy process that took forever to dry. I decided to enhance some of the lines with stitching, but my rotator cuff gave out, so I couldn't do the needlework I envisioned. It was drawn freehand, with no plan, just a random design that came out of my head. Pretty much typical of what I doodle, but bigger and in color. It is about 20" wide x 10" high.

Hi Linda,
Great colors. I agree it would be a neat cover. I do a lot of 'doodles' that I transfer into art quilts so I am interested in seeing what you are trying.

I wanted to respond to your comment to me Linda. But as I came to your site to write you back I saw this absolutely stunning piece of work! -Gosh, I just love your stuff! In response to my connection to Upstate NY-- my daughter lives in Troy, my sister lives in Schenectady, but I grew up in the Berkshires, in Lenox. However, I raised my children for 15yrs in Stephentown, NY...I still visit the Albany, Schenectady, Troy region pretty often (2x a year). Keep on commenting on blog when you can, I will value your input--I sure hope an opening crops up to make some ATC's with the group!
