Hand Painted and Stamped Fabric

Several months back I shared an image of Portals #6 but didn’t say much about it. Mostly because I was busy writing about my crazy ACC shipping shipping story.

Time to circle back around and share the new direction I’ve taken with my Portals series.

Last summer I communicated with Lynn Krawczyk and we decided to do a small collaboration. She provided me with some of her painted fabrics and I used them in my textile paintings, which are normally made with solid, patterned fabrics.

I ended up combining her more graphic fabrics (the blue bullseyes on red and the gold circles/lines on purple are her fabrics) with my some fabrics I had hand painted and stamped over 10 years ago.

I quickly ran out of her fabric but kept going with fabrics of my own and ended up making over 40 small textile paintings in the portals series with these patterned fabrics.

In this post I’m sharing the 12×12 inch pieces.

In coming weeks I’ll share the smaller sizes (8×8, 6×6 and even a few 4×4).
