Oh Deer Me

You see I have this solo exhibition coming up and its been yonkers since I have painted for real. It takes me quite sometime to get my head back into painting. So rather than go to all the fuss of that (and the studio is half way through its renovation) I whipped up something on what is very familiar to me right now..my sewing machine. This is working out great for me as my exhibition is really heavily influenced with my sewing and blogland...hooray for having a theme!! I'm thinking - Nanas Rock or Grandma Gone Wild - type of title might suit.

I had the idea in my head for this work and with a little bit of my buddy Google I developed a picture.

I had heaps of fun drawing on the machine...think I might do it again sometime. The back is a fab table cloth that I cut up and reformed the pattern...a little bit of background, some found lace and TA - DA
I'm going to leave all the ends loose and not bind the edge or trim it in anyway...I'm going to embrace the messy side of me...screw it...it works.
Another work down... two weeks left
