Shibori Borealis


Another mixed media piece for the gallery in Gettysburg this weekend - pleated silk shibori with needle-felted backbround mounted on to textured/painted surface. I really want to take a better picture outside but for the past two days we've had dark stormy clouds in the morning so this will have to do but I love just looking at the combination of soft silky colorful pleats combined with the wool and other textures. I thought about naming it "earth, sea and sky" but Shibori Borealis won out!
