Hello! I'm Laurel Bahe and I so excited to use stitching as part of my painting. This is new to me and even though I didn't do much stitching I love the results and will keep playing with the sewing machine on my watercolor paintings. This little owl is 5"x7" painted with watercolor, acrylic and felt tip markers on 200 lb watercolor paper, mounted on 1.5" thick canvas with collaged and painted edges. I live in Colorado Springs and visited Wild Heather Gallery for the first time yesterday. Love that place!
