White Matter#2 - 12x12 inch Rainbow Brain in French Knots
This piece is a fanciful look at white matter in the brain.
I started with a manipulated image of one of my embroidered rainbow brains printed on linen and then I stitched a multitude of French Knots out of cotton thread in all the colors. Look at the detail images and you'll see little flowers come to life.
After finishing the stitching I stretched the piece onto 12 x 12 inch heavy duty wooden stretcher bars and painted - first a layer of white paint, then gold ribbons radiating out from the brain.
8x10 Print reproductions of the brain image only are now available here. All original artwork ships free and insured by priority mail in the US. One of a kind piece that I won't be repeating.
