The second part of today's posting shows another 4 Portrait Shuffles - Huge Thanks to everyone!
Mary Doherty - mixed media. The painting has been overlayed with stitch, and paper and/or fabrics. The eyes stare out at you and one half of the painting stands slightly proud of the other.
Cate Kalson has made this lino print which has a note on the reverse to say "self-portrait: 41 weeks preganant and trying to patiently wait for the new arrival!"
Crikey Cate!! Hope all is well - best wishes from all at TOH!!
Orna Doherty has made a striking stitched embroidery. Beautifully done in shades of blue and turquiose with darker tones of grey and highlights of orange. He is a Siberian husky called Atticus!
Heather Bowman (thanks for your letter Heather- it's fabulous!) has sent this stitched portrait called "Covering Up" It's on a cloth (padded) and stitched background with appliqued fabrics and beading. Very sparkly!!
Heather wanted to convey the idea that we have sad experiences in our lives but hide it wherever we can with makeup!
