My new range of 'embroidered specimens in resin' have been a lot of fun to create. These smaller scale embroideries are much quicker to make then my usual work and give me the opportunity to play with colours and new designs that may eventually become much larger pieces in the future. At the moment my favourites are the the black fan flower specimens (seen toward the back of the pic). I especially love how the single stitch lines of thread twist and curl in the resin and have a life of their own. These will be for sale at the Painters Gallery show 'Tactility' that starts on Tuesday (official opening on Saturday 5th May) in Mona Vale.
