Rush Hour, 20x24"

Continuing with my patterned fabric experiments, this is on a paisley-printed muslin that has been sized and glued to a baltic birch panel. I used a wax medium throughout most of the painting because I liked the texture it gave the paint, and it created interesting, uneven edges.

Whoa! What a stunning effect! Great job on the frwy scene. Driving on paisley would be quite a trip.

Yes, it would add a whole new twist to rush hour traffic. ; - )
Thanks!

Leslie this is so interesting and exciting! Hope you are going to explore this some more.
The Alice show looked like it was a whole lot of fun!

It seems that the cars are produced by the paisley below, and are watched by the paisley above.

So it seems that the paisley is alive. (at least to me).

Hi Sandra! There is definitely more experimentation with fabric on the way. The Alice show was a blast!

Salamandra, I love the idea of "living paisley." I was really trying to integrate the pattern with the painting, and connect the two...thanks!

I just found your site, through Dani's Art Blog. You have such a sense of modern style, which you express through skillful traditional techniques. And you're brave enough to push 'em both. I'm definitely spending more time in here.

Thanks Jason, that's one of my favorite themes. I have more of these fabric experiments in the works; should be fun!
