Finished - Lyric Kinard Workshop "Abstract-A- Licious"

I learned a lot creating this finished piece from a recent workshop 
with Lyric Kinard. 
You can see the "before" photo here.
Lyric Kinard's workshop was an excellent combination of creating design,
 being able to discuss design and exploring ways to improve design. Lyric offered the opportunity to step out of our comfort zones with color combinations and time to just play with design.

Orange/Red Slow Stitched Bird

When reorganizing my hand painted fabrics, I came across this
Orange/Red piece I created using Pebeo Setacolor paint and
rice and grass as a resist. 
The red paint was just in the right spot for a bird's head.
I chose "X" for the bird's stand. 
I'm still enjoying slow stitching  birds. 
Check out collages created from my slow stitched birds
for sale in my ETSY Shop.

Lyric Kinard Workshop | Abstract-A-Licious

I had the wonderful opportunity to take a 
workshop with Lyric Kinard - "Abstract-A-Licious".
Lyric led us through 
simple and concrete design exercises, doodles and expansion on those doodles to 
create our own abstract design.  We also were challenged to work with a new color combination.
I chose this complementary color combo of teal and red/orange.  
Fused and ready to add batting and quilt - this was a piece that stretched me.
I highly recommend a workshop with Lyric.
