Slow Dance

Shelly Brucar

Hand-dyed, painted, machine stitched. In my “Impressionist Landscapes in Fabric” series, I have gradually moved from layering of fabric to more whole-cloth surface design and from mostly representational to more impressionistic. I start with white fabric, dye it, screen it, put color in, take color out, paint it and stitch it, allowing the piece to lead and inspire.
