Dreaming Bubbles

This is drawing I did of Danielle last year, as she was laying on the sofa with her hood up, this is all that you could see of her face. I used shiva paint sticks on PFD Fabric. It has been hanging on my wall just waiting for something to happen to it.

Well, it started with a scribble, inspired by Mary's "Head Music 2", in my sketch book, incorporating the face...then adding some of Melody's luscious hand dyed fabrics...it is about 29" x 32".

So, please tell me what you think...

slowly scanning down your blog while reading, i never suspected that the face was going to be incorporated into the sketch...the face against the vibrant colours and design is a great focal point!

Wow, Marlene. Really gorgeous, and I love the curved edges; square just wouldn't have done it! The rich, saturated colors are great...is it silk?

For some reason, blogger didn't record my comment yesterday....This is incredible! The face is such an unexpected surprise...I think fusing sets you free artistically.

Keep up the wonderful work, Marlene!

And let's have a dye party!

Love it, I am impressed that that came from a line drawing...

I forgot - the face is so PERFECT, it really gives meaning to the title...

It's fabulous! I love this! I had the same reaction as Karoda...going from photo to sketch to this VIBRANT gorgeous abstract quilt. It's wonderful.

Wonderful! The progress from the sketch to this piece is truly creative. I have tremendous admiration for someone who can do this.

This is gorgeous! Those fabric colors are intense, and I love the way all the curves and shapes work together.
Always fun to see "process", so thanks for sharing your inspiration! Jen

So unexpected! Great job. It's a very interesting combination of both techniques and subject matter.
