I have made a short VIDEO to give you more insight into the inspiration and creation of this textile collage.
I have completed and delivered Wild Angelica with Moorland Grasses to Cornwall Crafts Association at their Trelissick Gallery for the new exhibition.
I have created a business page on Google+ and would love to find friends, so if you to belong to Google+ do take a look and, ideally, add me to your circle. This is the link but you can also use the g+ icon at the bottom of the page. https://plus.google.com/+AmandarichardsonartistTextileCollage/posts
This is an autumn of clear, soft sunshine and it is a feeling of this I wish to express in my collage of wild angelica and moorland grasses. The blue sky is filled with scudding clouds above a broad landscape of moorland, giving a feeling of openness and light.
Autumn has come and all the garden is draped with spider's webs, invisible until they catch the dew of early morning. I have been considering if my collage technique can capture their particular qualities or if embroidery and bead-work are the natural routes to take.
If you want to feel the wind in your hair this is the place. Carn Galver is a granite outcrop with views down to the North Coast of Cornwall, and the South and to the west the Land's End. This VIDEO is truly inspiration for my art.
Everyone who put their names down for the Free Art offer went into a hat yesterday and it was Debbie Nelson of London who came out as the winner. I shall be posting the miniature collage Poppy and Barley to her.
I am sure I shall be offering other art in the future so watch this space.
My white hydrangea has reached the perfect balance of pure white flowers and those where the edges of florets have blushed to pink and the flower-heads are now suffused with green. I hope you enjoy this video of the hydrangea in my garden and art.
