Van Gogh Iris slice is DONE!


Ifinally finished my slice of the Van Gogh Iris painting. (Technically it's not "quite" finished as I still have some thread painting to do -- however I'll do that once I sew all the slices together and threadpaint the entire thing for unity. )
This was such a cool project -- I LOVE Van Gogh and it was really interesting attempting to mimic his unique style with acrylic and thread.

To the left is a close up version of my finished piece. Down below you can see the original slice of his painting (print) on the left, the first layer of color I did in acrylic in the middle, and the final piece on the right.

I have received all but one of the other slices and I will be taking photographs and posting those over the weekend. I can't wait to share them with you as they are amazing -- each slice representing the unique talents and abilities of the artist who created it.

I am blown away! This is so beautiful. I love irises, as you can see on my header, and I love Van Gogh also. You are so talented, Cathie. This must be such fun "work".

Thanks for stopping by and your wonderful comments. Just spent some time looking around your blog. Your dogs are cuties.
Your work is beautiful too. I'm always amazed at anybody that can sew! :-)
