Teabags...and the Industrial Revolution
Industrial Revolution. Measures ~13x9 inches. I know there's a 'deep' artist statement in me about these two pieces, but I haven't come up with it yet... These are teabags on cloth, using the uber-talented Judy Coates Perez tutorials.
Industrial Revolution #2 (I need a better title) measures 14x8". I was going to make a bunch of these and sew them together to create a larger piece, but once I added the batting behind the teabags, glue, 200 count cotton, it was too hard to hand stitch--and I love my hand stitching!
Some of the imagery is printed from this exercise and some printed of my drawings and some just painted.
Even a tiny bit of Ralph's Letters can be seen!
