thread paintings and studio experiments

Slow and Steady...

Added on by Heidi Leitzke.

I continue to sneak up to my studio whenever I get a few spare minutes. Since the new year I have completed two embroideries. Certainly not meeting my one new work per month goal, but two new works in three months is not too bad, I'll take it.

I am still thinking about Thomas Bewick and the idea of the Romantic Vignette. I also really love how the reverse side of the embroidery is a tangled web of threads, I am thinking about how I can bring more of that chaos and energy to the front.
