Twice in one day

Here is Running Fence 2 which has been colored with disperse dyes and satin stitched. I can't believe how well this takes the disperse dyes!

Next piece will be much bigger...
This piece is 16 x 16".

The next one is 14.5 x 17.5"

Liz, this is stunning! I love the use of color and the stitched diagonal line! It's very energetic!

Love the colors! After seeing your work in person at the Anderson, I wish that I could see this one face to face. Those fissures look amazing.

How exciting to have this opportunity, Liz! Looks beautiful from here. I haven't worked with disperse dyes and they are not on my list, but who knows? The texture on this piece is wonderful.
And I love your abstract work in a previous post. Waaah - I wanna make work like yours!

Very nice, Liz. Would love to see these in person. Where will they be shown? Was sorry to miss SAQA but we were in Portland buying a house that has an awesome studio space. I am so excited.

Fabulous, Liz!!! Much nicer than the original running fence which ran through here in the 70's.
