No-one can say I haven’t stitched this piece enough.

STOP, already! Do you think I’ve been carried away a bit?

I just have to laugh. Next, I start painting again.

Don’t worry, those edges will get covered. You will also notice that the thread pulls at the paper a bit (and makes visible holes), but when one knows one will be adding paint again, it doesn’t matter. You’ll see!


About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    This technique with the stitching on the painted paper is absolutely beautiful…colors and texture and depth, oh my! I could stare at them all day. I know very little about sewing, but if I did I’d want to do this.

      Sherri, It’s just the craziest thing, but I love doing it. I take thread and paper everywhere, including the dentist office, and work, where I stitch during my lunch hour. I love to draw with a needle, and it is SO much fun to paint later.

  2. Sherri says:

    Carol, you did all this stitching by hand?? That’s amazing! I was assuming you did it ‘freestyle’ on a machine. The organic shapes are so beautiful.

  3. Carol Wiebe says:

    I do a lot on the machine, but that is not nearly so relaxing. I sound like I’m driving a race car as I stitch through all the layers at high speed!

    Thank you: soon you’ll see how the paint interacts with the stitching.
