New Painting- Sunshine Path

I have been working on this painting since before Christmas. So glad to finally post it. It keeps changing, I probably should move on. Also happy to announce I got into the Spring Arts Festival April 9th and 10th. I believe my new display system really helped me to get accepted.

Painting on Fabric

Happy 2011!
I wanted to share some fabric painting that I did on place mats for Christmas gifts. I created the shapes by cutting them out of marker paper then painted the paper with acrylic paint, fabric medium and a brush. Then I pressed the painted paper down on the fabric and rubbed on the back with the wooden brush handle. I was delighted to see the brush strokes translate on to the fabric when I lifted the paper. I set the paint with an iron.
