Digitally printed fabric with hand embroidery
This piece was my contribution to the art auction in my hometown. They do a fundraiser every year with a silent auction of 8×8 inch pieces. The artists are kept anonymous until after the event, so I have been keeping this one under wraps.
This is a collaboration with my mom. She snapped this photo of one of her neighbor deer. This particular deer had been recently snacking at the neighbors pear tree so I made the repeat pattern behind her with pears and flowers. I embroidered with shiny rayon thread to addd texture to her nose and ears and then gave her extra thick eyelashes. I love the “who me?” expression that mom captured.
