Freehand Machine Stitched Michael & Jeffrey 2


  • Details
    This series is based on contour line drawings I did of my high school students when I taught in my previous life. These were part of a series of Paintings that I created back in 2005, and were the last series of paintings that I did before transitioning into a fiber artist.

    “Watch Children” are my renditions of these paintings. I have played with a variety of bird heads, pattern backgrounds, props and the precious seeds and pollinators needed for our eco system to continue and for their bird lives to thrive. Each piece features freehand machine stitching ,to imitate my ink drawings, a variety of fabrics for texture , overlay and pattern. Frame can easily be removed for staining or painting.

    This piece is titled "Michael & Jeffrey 2" and is based off of my painting with the same title. Michael & Jeffrey 2 have a Curlew and a woodcock head with a teenager bodies and are freehand machine stitched on organza and appliqué on cotton fabric. The buttercup is freehand machine stitched on cotton fabric and appliquéd and reinforced stitched , along with the figures onto vintage line paper pattern cotton fabric.

    This final piece is stretched on a wooden painting panel and then framed with a pine wood. The dimensions of this framed work is 11.5" X 9.5" X 2"

    The frame is thick enough that the piece can stand on its own if you wanted to display it on a mantel or shelf.

    A metal D-ring is screwed into the back for ready hanging.

    Works well in a grouping!
