Fearless Friday

Well, I really liked my sewn painting from earlier this week, but I knew in my heart it wasn't finished.

It needed something to unify all the jumble of paint colours and to give the texture the opportunity to shine.

I nearly didn't do it, I was really rather scared of spoiling a piece of work that I was very fond of, but the idea of brushing paint all the way down it wouldn't leave me.

So here is the result.  Sometimes it is worth messing something up in order to make it even better.

It's true, tho' it's sometimes difficult to go that step further. Well done you.

that worked well :) does it say anything or just a squiggle?

Rolina said...

It is, Jo, but I am glad I did! Thanks for stopping by.

Rolina said...

Thanks Jennifer, yes it is just my incomprehensible squiggles! Just been working on something incorporating several layers of them and it all gets rather groovy.

Thanks Sheila - I am developing the squiggles further, they speak to me.
