Well here's a quick jump forward in time, from one of the first dress related pieces, to one of the most recently completed. I've done many of these glove pieces and call them all "A bird in the hand." They are all 12" square, on gallery wrapped canvas. The vintage glove is adhered to the canvas and the painting begins. In Georgia we are fortunate enough to have an abundance of bluebirds willing to pose as models for seed. "Nest" was stitched through the canvas with embroidery floss, and also painted over. One of my favorite things about this piece is the translucent paint that surrounds the bit of damask pattern in the background. Acrylics are very flexible in allowing the painter to use them transparently to opaquely, and everything in between. Sold.
