feminist hoop art by femmebroidery

i’m majorly crushing on this embroidery hoop art — the feminist script, the lovely floral design, all of it.

A warm up painting from the other day.  I rarely paint without a pre-drawn sketch or color rough, but sometimes it’s fun to just let go and see what happens – apparently, bright colors!


I’m about to toss myself in bed to get a couple hours of sleep before a very early flight, but wanted to post these two wee moths I made before my very welcome vacation (more on that later!).

They’re examples for an embroidery workshop I’m teaching at the end of April, but I love them so much I’ve decided they’re also my friends*

*I’m re-reading Anne of Green Gables right now in advance of watching more of the new series that’s being aired here & I think Anne-with-an-E’s way of thinking is percolating even more so than usual in my brain!
