White Matter#2 - 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.
