Saltaire exhibition

Very soon after the sisters show I took part in an AVA group exhibition in the Saltaire festival. There was very little time so I developed a 'two for the work of one idea'. I stretched very fine organdie over paper coated in wipe-clean emulsion. I then painted with watercolour; the paint goes through the fabric and slides all over the coated paper in an unexpected and lovely way. I then embroider into the fabric for one picture and maybe just overlay the paper with transparent fabric for the other picture. I was quite pleased with the result but its interesting that the only picture I sold was one where I had put the fabric back onto the paper; so maybe not. The last picture is a watercolour of the picture that I sold.

Some photos from the show

sisters show

The sisters show was enormously enjoyable. Our work was of course both different and similar. I admired the straightness of Phillida's straight lines and she liked my more haphazard stitching. We both sold and, even more delightful, sold similar amounts. We plan to repeat the experience in Canada in June 2016
