She Who Sews Memories
21" x 27" Watercolor paper, acrylic, embroidery thread, metallic thread and metallic leaf. Framed with simple black frame, ready to hang.
She Who Sews Memories is part of my Sew What Series. After a conversation with my teenage granddaughter, I made my first " Sew What" painting for her. It was so much fun I have continued adding additional paintings. The paintings all focus on a single female figure that has control over her environment by sewing the things in it. In this painting, she sews memories. I used photo transfers of old family photos. I use metallic leaf and metallic thread to enhance the paintings.
