Sunshine, Cool Breeze and Paint All Over My Hands!

I had a great day today, opened up the window to the Studio and enjoyed the sunshine, singing Cardinals and cool breeze. What an inspiration! Being in such a great mood and feeling very artistic, I spent the day dyeing fat quarters and hankies. While those were in the dye bath I painted duck cloth and PFD. Oh what a wonderful feeling to be back in the Studio and paint all over my hands! Kathy Mayhew influenced me to paint duck cloth, I’m hooked! I love the way the paint flows and the results. I’m anxious to quilt these pieces!
The first five pictures of painted duck cloth. The rest are painted PFD.

This is PFD that I rolled with another painted piece. I have heat set it and will throw it in a dye bath tomorrow.

Hope you enjoyed my "Show and Tell for today. I had loads of fun and wanted to share my "art excitement"!

Love the show and tell! I've never tried painting on duck cloth. How are you going to use your newly painted pieces??

I'm going to quilt them and maybe add some more surface layers to some of them and maybe some mixed media....and then they'll be "For Sale"! ;) Glad you like the Show and Tell!
