peacock feathers

while i was at the cha trade show, i spent a few hours each day in the liquitex booth, demonstrating paints, inks and mediums on a variety of surfaces.
this is black lutradur, painted with a variety of soft-body acrylic colors, and accented with black lava texture medium. then using my textile tool, i carved it out of the sheet and burned accent lines and dots into the design.
it's roughly 15' square, and i'm still noodling on what to do with it....i might stitch it into a wall quilt, or i might wrap it around a vase. it sure was fun to paint!


  1. really like this love the colours and it does look very peacock like..look good as a centrepiece to a quilt

  2. Your blog is amazing. I love this piece.
