Painted Fabric Bed Quilt Project Continues...

It was important to maintain the impact of the central floral which will pretty much fill up the centre of the top of the bed...the sides will be the Mille Fleurs areas.
I have more or less completed the right hand middle part, and to keep the momentum going, I am going to slide the fabric up and begin the whole bottom section. Later I will go back and complete the left hand middle bit, and probably do some more little tiny details on the right hand side. Then I will draw and paint the top section last. Just worked out that way, no reason.

As before, I block in the dark areas, and then begin blocking in larger areas of colour, gradually adding more and more detail on top.

Lots of work! LOTS of detail. But once the theme, colours and repeating elements are established (the analytical part!), its a very meditative satisfying process...its going well, and its fun.

Hello Pam,
My name is Anne H. Hunter and I am an artist in Rifle, Colorado. I am VERY impressed with your site and have some questions, requests for advice on certain things when you have the time. I am a single mom with two beautiful children. I substitute teach so that I can fill other time with my artwork. I am going to start doing floorcloths and custom 'vintage' posters. I look forward to hearing from you. Your work is beautiful! I have done lots of painting on 'things'. My work has become known here and now I'm ready to expand my horizons. Thanks for the inspiration just by looking at your work. Have a great day! Sincerely, Anne
