New series in hand-dyed linen

Here's the first in my new series. I'm using simple shapes, cut and pieced from my own hand-dyed linen, and some couching and stitching for detail.

Tentatively titled: I have tried in my way to be free

The pieces measure 24" x 24", and are mounted on stretched canvas, with edges painted black.

This one may be submitted to our small-group show of works inspired by Leonard Cohen, hence the title.

This is so elegant Heather - well worth experimenting with.

Such rich colors, bravo! And I love your design , simple yet dynamic.

I love the look that the linen imparts - the texture and the colours are very different from cotton. And I like your new style!

Thanks for these encouraging comments. I feel that this new series has some potential for growth.

I am late to read this, but I must say I like this piece very much. :-)
