A blast from the past!

In looking at the pictures under 'images' for Pierneef a couple stuck out that reminded me of a piece I have in the back of my cupboard.


The medium used is dyed tissue paper glued onto a board, paint added and then sealed with a water based varnish. This is the result from a workshop I did many years ago called 'Mark Making' run by Sue Physick, a local textile artist.  It was 2 days a month over nearly 6 months and took me to places I had never been before and also boosted my confidence into making 'marks' on my cloth in ways I would never of dreamt of. Hence this piece takes me back and reminds me of where I have been and come from. It does one good to look back every now and again !!

  2. Well, who's a lucky bunny ? Not only are you in SA but with some insight already. Will this challenge make use of some of those things you learnt and discovered on that course, I wonder. Yes, it is good to look back and see how far we have come. Hilary
