More Silk

This clematis grows through a quince in my garden and I can get close up and personal as it is situated alongside a path. I used silk satin for the support and embellished with free machine embroidery and beads.

This anemone blanda grows under shrubs in my garden. Unfortunately the colour has not reproduced exactly in the photo, it has a more purple tinge. Each of the individual stamens are free machine embroidered which becomes the focal point of the painting. Again I sold both of these painting and I still get such a thrill when someone likes my work enough to put it on their wall.

This is a very great work. The stitching flowers seems to be really.
I like your paisley stitching too.
