Collage… quidditative with quilters

Today I puttered on a 9x12 canvas board that I had previously covered with painted tissue paper.  I collaged a photo of some quilters and some paper lace on first.  I also used the paper lace as a stencil in some places and got some lights back.  Then I painted into the textured surface which was an adventure itself - bits of the tissue are still absorbent, and the paint catches and flows around the hills and valleys of the texture. 

I am working with some themes that fascinate me:  women’s relationship dynamics, social butterflies, loners, motherhood and the weaving all of these together.  Lots left to do on this one…

quilt Enjoy!
