Sometimes when I paint the fabrics, I have some idea what I might do with it. Sometimes I don’t but I like the colors and the general feel of the painted design. I had this piece up on my design wall a long time not really getting any feel for what I should do with it. I really liked the colors and I thought the abstract image was rather pleasing so I resisted a long time adding any sewing or embellishments or quilting to it. Then I thought of texture and found this specialty yarn that had the same color tones and I sewed the yarn pieces down. I studied the abstraction some more and figured now I’m going to highlight some of the elements with black ink. I immediately saw the little insects flying and drew them. The large turquoise blobs on the bottom are perhaps some kind of cocoon or nest the insects came out of.
