Red Flower in Process Red Flower
Red Flower is a still life image, not my usual subject matter. It was accepted into the Orlando Art Museum’s 2006 Festival of the Trees, a benefit for the museum. I drew it in Photoshop, then printed out a full size pattern on large format paper. After transferring the lines, they were painted with metallic fabric paints.
Fusible web was ironed onto the back, then one or two sections at a time were cut out and new fabric inserted from behind. It was free-motion quilted then mounted onto heavy duty stretcher bars. The finished size is 18 by 26 inches, but the actual image had to be a couple of inches larger on all sides to allow it to wrap around to the back. It was interesting to try out the gallery wrap style of mounting a fabric piece.
