Thread Painting – What’ch ya doing?
This piece was my first one in a class with Jennifer Day in New Mexico. The photograph started as a black and white picture that I wanted to be a more sepia tone in mild colors. It is of my granddaughter Brianna was 2 ½ or 3 years old when this was taken with her pony Star. In her hair there is approximately 9 colors of thread to give you just a hint of the number of different threads used to make this. The dress that she was wearing was in reality bright pink and green on white so I took some liberty with my colors to fit the scene.
