This is a small 6x6-inch mixed-media painting on gallery wrapped linen made with acrylic paint, gouache, graphite, painted cloth, broken costume jewelry, and embroidery threads.

This painting is part of a series of embroidered landscapes that means so much to me.  I have a history of making stitched beaded jewelry with some found elements, like shells, buttons and fabrics, etc., and I also have a history of painting with many different materials.  Recently these two techniques merged and I have been embroidering directly into my paintings.  The result is these small but evocative landscapes that feel charged with the meaning.  

  • Ready to hang on the wall
  • Delectable texture
  • A one-of-a-kind treasure
  • An old handkerchief with paint on it is cut up into scraps and sewn on, the costume jewelry (fake diamonds) were from a broken necklace, there is also some fringed string
