The Edge of the Woods

The Edge of the Woods

85.00

This is a small 6x6-inch mixed-media painting on gallery wrapped linen made with acrylic paint, gouache, old jewelry, and sewn embroidery thread.

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
  • A one-of-a-kind treasure
  • Jewelry that is sewn on was from a broken pair of earrings
  • This was painted in response to the edge of the woods at my family's farm
  • Delightful texture
