Kaleidoscope - 12x14 - Framed mixed media neuro art piece
My 'Kaleidoscope' piece features hand embroidered French Knots in a multitude of colors with colored wire and golden beads embedded throughout. It started out as one of the designs in my Brilliant Brain Coloring Book, and I stitched it up, added the colored wires which spring up right out of the thread, including a smattering of golden beads.
It took a very long time to complete the stitching and was especially difficult to stitch around the curlicue wires sticking up. After stitching was complete, I stretched it onto an 10x12 set of stretcher bars and painted the background with acrylic paint. I found the perfect black frame which is painted with a lovely gold. The wire bits extend beyond the frame. It is wired in the back for hanging and the full framed piece measures 12x14x1.5. Ships free and insured priority mail anywhere in the U.S. and internationally with an additional shipping fee. Get in touch with me for a precise quote on international shipping.
Note - this is a one of a kind piece. I will never make another just like it. The title was suggested by friends via social media and as I was looking for a definition of the word I came across the brilliant quote by Marquita Herald that you will find in the last photo on her blog Emotionally Resilient Living. I plan to offer prints down the road. You can read more about the making of it on my blog post here.
