Pink Lemonade

Since my workshop with Gerry Chase last weekend, I've had too much legal work to be able to play much...but I did manage to make one small, quick composition. Following Gerry's suggestions, I tore some of my painted pieces randomly and then worked to assemble a story with them.

I call this Pink Lemonade, because as I was working with the leafy pieces and the pink splashy ones, it made me think of a hot day and intense shadows and cool leafy places. It was a fun quick exercise and I really enjoyed working with fabric I'd created myself.

Now I think I'm seeing what these surface design-obsessed folks get into...


  1. I absolutely love what you have done with that wonderful fabric. I am extremely inspired and will definitely be trying these techniques. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I did a bit of surface design stuff in my City & Guilds course but it didn't really spark with me. However, your fun pieces have prompted me to pull out my fabric paints and this time I'm enjoying it. Thank you!

  3. Love your piece! Light, bright, balanced!
